The children had glorious sunshine for their Forest School Day in early May; spirits were high, and it was lovely to see them all enjoying spending time in nature.
"Oh my, my mouth is watering"
"I did not know I liked guacamole"
"I like Mr Linch's secret recipe for bean stew"
- all overheard at the campfire lunch on the Year 3 Forest School Day.
They prepared a delicious lunch and cooked it on the fire, made elaborate dens, sung campfire songs and even wrote some poetry for the Coronation. As they wearily headed back to their classrooms, it was wonderful to overhear them saying, "that was the best day ever!"
Outdoor Learning is an important feature of School life at Marlborough House; supporting the development of character strengths and transferrable skills. Our weekly Forest School sessions (for Nursery through to Year 4) and dedicated Forest School Days, provide the perfect opportunities to deliver these experiences. Classes across the curriculum are also encouraged to use the great outdoors to inspire learning.
