Even though Maebh & Soren’s school has a weekly Forest School – Outdoor learning component built into the annual curriculum, the teachers arranged a full day for the Nursery & Reception kids at Sheringham Park. I combined working that day at the park so that I could join them right after lunch.
It was organized by the same staff, from the Acorn Toddler group, who did the other events I have blogged about before: Animal Adventure Adventure, A Shore Thing, Magnificent Moths, Don’t Worry Bee Happy, It’s A Hoot, Owl Prowl and a few more.
The morning they had some walks around the park, did some activities. When I joined them, they went into the learning center to build their own Yule Logs.
After they mixed their own sweet dough in cups. They rolled their dough into sausage like shapes and put them on the sticks, which they whittled earlier in the session. We then headed over to the tarp covered circle area where Rob had a fire set up. Parents were invited to come join the kids at 2 pm for the bonfire portion of the day.
After some warm cocoa and sweet dough on sticks, a book was read and then we were off.
