Reception trip to Beggar Bush

19th April 2018
What a spectacular day for Reception to experience their first trip to Beggar Bush! The sun was shining brightly as we excitedly boarded the coach looking the part in our shades, wellies and sun cream. We were met by the friendly staff Rob, Rachel and Ash who set out the forest school rules and then off we went into our three groups.
We had great fun exploring and climbing using the value of cooperation to manoeuvre the biggest stick and respect for the nature in the woods and our wonderful adult helpers.
Groups showed honesty when saying how many ‘fairy doors’ they had found walking in the woods and how many biscuits they had munched at snack time! Both classes realised the responsibility they had to keep the grass area tidy from litter after lunch time and displayed kindness to each other when sharing water and food. Everybody aspired to do their best especially around the fire at base camp and to be safe and enjoy eating a toasted marshmallow!
We used all the school values today on our trip which is why we all had so much fun together- learning through play.
