Parents Join Pupils for Forest School Picnic at Wimbledon Common

20th Jun 2013

On Wednesday 12th June, the Reception children at Wandsworth Prep School welcomed their parents to a very special Forest School picnic at Wimbledon Common. All year the children have been taking part in weekly Forest School sessions where the aim is to extend the curriculum and bring learning to life by providing children with real experiences and by making their learning meaningful and purposeful. Inviting parents to our picnic provided a fantastic opportunity for pupils to share with their parents the ways in which taking part in Forest School has allowed them to:
  • make choices independently,
  • develop an appreciation of nature and all living things,
  • assess their own risks,
  • work as part of a team,
  • develop inquisitive minds by questioning the world around them,
  • develop their problem solving skills and develop positive attitudes to learning.
Parents, staff and children took part in team challenges which had been left by the ‘Woodland Folk’. Collaborating, the teams had to work together to problem solve and complete tasks which involved risk assessing the area, tool talks, forest treasure hunts, and the creation of natural artwork. The most notable creations were ‘the Forest Eye’ and ‘Backpack Den’ where materials collected from the Forest floor were used as artwork material. Following the completion of the tasks, we were treated to a very special picnic lunch made by both the children and their parents. A huge thank you to all parents, staff and four legged friends, Bugs and Ted, who attended and took part. See photos from Reception’s Forest School picnic here.
