Forest School Mud Kitchen

We had a lovely time at Forest School this monday. We took pots and pans and various tools to make a mud kitchen along the stream and explored lots of cooking, selling and splashing! On the way we put up some of the bird feeders we had previously made.
These sorts of sessions are really enriching and engaging for the class and it's fantastic to see how well prepared and "forest school ready" tha majority of the class are. Can I just ask that thought is also given to what children wear after forest school? A change of socks and trousers are essential following messy water activities, and really a whole outfit is needed for when our sleeves get wet or we fall. We have gone through a huge quantity of spare school socks and have run out of these again! Each child having their own change of clothes will really help and support a quick transition from forest school to other learning, as well as increase children's independence as they manage their own changing. Thanks!
