2020 has proven to be a challenging one in terms of the effects of Covid on forest school, resulting in our normal leavers celebration needing to be cancelled due to social distancing. This, however prompted us to rethink and adapt, resulting in one of the most amazing experiences we've had to date; Our 'Big Leavers Campout'!!!
Families bought an amazing array of tents, shelters and sleeping hammocks and joined together (socially distanced!) to cook and chat around the fire. Parents chatted freely and children had the amazing opportunity to say a final farewell to their friends and the woodland. We were even treated to a wonderful shooting star spectacle in the evening, where the families all went to bed full of awe for the natural world - no doubt this will now be a yearly event for us and we are so excited for the next camp out!
