BLC EYFS forum – Natural Thinkers training

On Wednesday evening, our EYFS forum members met to spend some time outside for a change, discovering the wealth of learning opportunities in the local park for young children’s learning. This was part of an introduction to Natural Thinkers, Lambeth’s programme developed from Forest Schools, delivered by Assistant Head of Jessop Primary Dougal Morton. We collected objects in the park to make bookmarks, learnt how to make a safe fire to enjoy with very young children and how to whittle elder wood to make beads and pendants, all activities that can be done with very young children. Thanks to all the staff who attended and to Dougal for leading.
