Best job EVER! πŸ’š

πŸŒ³πŸŒ²πŸ’šYay for Friday! ALWAYS appreciative that, let’s face it, I have the BEST job in my school (not without its challenges and also a matter of opinion I am sure 😜) having the opportunity to play. BUT there’s no such thing as JUST playing with our adventures and co-playing as there is also so MUCH invisible learning going on to help support confidence, nature connection, understanding the world, arts and crafts with natural materials, self esteem and physical development – gross and fine motor skills BEFORE we even start to link in the curriculum (if we need to) AND that’s just the beginning! 😊🌳🌲🌳

🌲🌳🌲THIS week we have enjoyed muddy tea parties, icey dishes, exploring and painting daffodils, whittling, checking in with how we’re doing, stomping like bears, hiding like foxes and rabbits, clay face making, swinging from trees, making music with pots n pans, wood and sticks, making beeswax clay t-lights, using bow saws to make our own cookies, hammock swinging, camouflage hiding and a bit of Silver Birch tapping for the grown ups 😊🌲🌳🌲

🌳🌲Happy Friday – have a great weekend! 🌳🌲😊
