Flying Start @ Redruth Go On A Forest School Adventure!

The pre-schoolers at Flying Start @ Redruth put on their warm clothes, their waterproofs, and their high-vis jackets and went on a fun trip to forest school…

They found a den in the woods which was a very exciting discovery!

They searched for interesting items and collected their treasure to make magic wands with once they were back at nursery!

Then they even built their own den, and splashed in lots of muddy puddles!!

Great forest based learning and fun!
