A huge thankyou to Sharan at @Baked by Endsor for her incredibly generous contribution of these delicious Autumn biscuits for the parents and children at Playgroup. As we haven’t been able to hold a number of fundraising events last term, the generosity of this local business helped us to raise £120 for Playgroup, a fantastic total and such a tasty half term treat for the children.
The children made a beautiful Autumn mandala to celebrate our Indian themed session at forest school today. We made a delicious Indian feast using our senses we explored a colourful warming array of exotic spices and chopped up a variety of locally harvested vegetables for our vegan vegetable curry with an Indian chai warm milk drink, coconut cinnamon rice pudding and Indian spiced popcorn.
We had a wonderful sunny start to our Forest School term with Mimi from Wild Wood Rangers which started with a Stickman hunt! We familiarised the children with the site, climbed trees, made out own stick men, whittled some sticks and did mark making and rubbings.
It wouldn’t be forest school without our campfire cooked snacks and lunch of roast veg, halloumi and tofu, baked potatoes, and finished off with a secretly baked vegan chocolate cake in the Dutch oven to celebrate a birthday, complete with whittled stick candles
We hope you had a wonderful Summer Break.
We are very excited to be back in setting and to see everyone after a long break! It has been lovely to meet all the new children joining and seeing all the familiar faces again, the staff has really missed the children!
