Last Thursday was our first day at Hazelwood Nature Rangers. We spent our time getting to know our environment. We found a great tree to climb, looked for the best skimming pebbles and splashed about in mud and the pond. We talked about how to keep safe as we have fun. We returned to the school building tired but incredibly happy and chatty. There’s going to be marshmallows and a fire next week!
Exploring the woodland contributes to building resilience, friendship, learning new tasks and working as a part of a team. All this takes place through play and the children don't even know they are learning!
