The recent cold weather hasn’t stopped Pre-Prep this term as we have seen the children venturing outside to take part in Forest School activities, often in snowy cold conditions!
This half term Pre-Prep children have had a variety of activities to get involved in. Some children have been completing a bingo worksheet alongside other fun and exciting activities. These have included creating some ice art, finding a ‘treemendous’ face, making a garden on a tray and toasting marshmallows over a candle
During our snowiest week, we saw an amazing display of creative snowmen including a snow owl, a snow mouse and a snow castle! Some children built their own snow igloo and lots of children also used the snowy ground as a perfect opportunity to spot footprints in the snow.
After the RSPB’s Big Birdwatch weekend, the children experimented with making their own bird’s nests or dens. They created these thinking carefully about the shapes of the nests and finding a range of suitable materials outside. This week their challenge was to make their own den that they could fit in themselves.
Whatever the task for the week, the most important thing was having the opportunity to get outside and get some fresh air. It has been wonderful to hear about some of the lovely walks the children have been taking, whether these have been in the dark first thing in the morning or taking new routes by the river or across fields near home. What great adventures, well done Pre-Prep!
