Bat Business 🦇

Friday evening we enjoyed a bat walk led by Sustrans David.  There was a great turn out – lots of different ages and it was lovely to see you all!  It was too cold for the bats BUT we had a great time using the bat monitors, hearing lots of bat facts from David and enjoying a walk under the stars.

Many thanks to Sustrans 😊🦇😊.

Summer Fun Sessions!

B8D6DBF8-A281-4605-B2BF-60E96AE4BB46.jpegThe Summer Fun sessions are just that … a chance to play outside with friends and family and maybe try something new.  The sessions have been really successful with up to 25 children attending which is wonderful BUT they have made me wonder about the essence of Forest School and how to provide more connected, smaller sessions (as the normal Forest School sessions are).  I will be making changes in my approach and practice in the Autumn term, details to follow …

In the meantime, with a magical folk themed birthday party and the last Summer Session next week at Nature Noodles it’s a great time to enjoy the sunshine and get outdoors! 🌿🍃🌿
