On Wednesday, Reception went to the Horniman Museum. We got a train to Forest Hill, which many of the children thoroughly enjoyed, and took a bus the hill. In the gardens, we explored the different plants on a scavenger hunt in our small groups, the children were engaged and supporting each other’s learning and understanding, while reminding each other of Laura’s Forest School rule: “No picking, no licking.”
After we had lunch, we played some games of “What’s the time Mr Wolf”, before going on the animal trail. The children saw Alpacas, Sheep, Goats and Chickens – they were thrilled. The journey back was slightly sleepier, after all the walking, talking and fun, but we did manage to send off our wonderful parent volunteers with a mighty “THANK YOU” when we got back.
