A Very Frosty Forest School!

Written by Aigburth. Posted in Forest School, General



Some of our pre-school children enjoyed a frosty Forest School session!
First, they listened to the story Stick Man while enjoying a cup of hot chocolate.
Then with Mike & Fern, they looked closely at the ice and frost in the forest and later spoke about how the sun had come out and started to melt the ice/frost (just like the snowman in the Stick Man story!)
The children then enjoyed digging, making mud castles, playing games and finding a wriggly worm!
They finished the session off enjoying campfire pizzas and warm chocolate brioche for pudding that they helped to make!

Forest School

Today was our parent’s session for Forest school, our parents and children enjoyed reading stories, going on a nature walk, making medallions and having a yummy curry for dinner. To end the session parents and carers toasted marshmallows on the campfire with their little ones. We would like to say Thank You to all parents and carers who attended.

Today at Forest School

Written by Garston. Posted in Forest School



Today at Forest School we read a story about a hungry guinea pig called Christopher Nibble! He loved to eat dandelion leaves so started to grow his own. Afterwards, we went on a flower hunt to find some dandelions and we also found lots of bluebells too! We also played a new team game – Capture The Flag! We all had a fab time hiding and finding the flags, bringing them back to the square base. Round the fire we had pita pizzas for lunch, they were scrumptious! We can’t wait for next week’s session!

Forest School Comes to Honey Pot

Written by Garston. Posted in Forest School



A few weeks ago, Ashley our Forest School Leader came to Honey Pot Garston to carry out a mini forest school session in our Garden. The Worker Bees & Busy Bees children all sat in a circle and listened carefully to the rules. Ashley lit the fire and then we got a pan and made some popcorn as a special treat. All of the children were very sensible throughout and they all sat very quietly so they could hear the popcorn popping in the pan. It was a great session and has made the children very excited about attending Forest School with Ashley in April!

Our first few session of Forest School in the Spring Term have gone extremely well. The children are absolutely loving it. Our Forest School Teachers Ashley & Michael have been teaching the children the basic rules of Forest School which cover safety around the fire circle and the correct way to use the tools. During their latest session they made pieces of art on the trees using all of natures resources and they had their first meal at Forest school which was prepared on the camp fire!

Dads go to Forest School

Written by Childwall. Posted in Forest School

On Saturday some of the children from Childwall, Aigburth and Garston took their dads to our Forest School in Otterspool. When they arrived Ashley, our Forest School Leader and some of the staff from the nurseries were there to meet and greet the children and assist them in trying out a number of different activities. They were able to use a very big sharp saw to cut discs of bark,  do messy mud painting on the trees, build dens for their dads and them to hide in and after all the hard work they had done, sit by a snuggly fire and toast brioche and drink hot chocolate. Some of the children even went on a bear hunt with their dads. It was a great day and the weather stayed dry and all dads and children had a fun and action packed morning. Thank you to all that attended and a big thank you to Ashley for all her hard work.

Garston at Forest School

We have been having fun at Forest School making muddy faces on the trees. We added water to the soil, mixed it together and put it on the trees. We added sticks and leaves for the facial features. We hope they are still there when we go back next week!

Another day at Forest School and a lot more fun is had

Written by Childwall. Posted in Forest School

The children had their 5th session in the Forest at Otterspool and had an amazing time climbing trees, looking for birds nests and making swings. They even caught Suzie and Ashley joining in the fun and took pictures to remember the good time that they had. Before making a fire the children were visited by a baby robin. He wanted to join in with the fun and games.

We had our first real fire at Forest School this week. Ashley lit it and put the kettle on to make our hot chocolate! We also toasted brioche for our snack and crumpets for our tea!
