Forest School for EAL - November
Children have been joining weekly Forest School groups which aim to explore cultural values and encourage pronunciation and literacy skills through nursery rhymes, traditional songs and stories and also to improve confidence using language through practice and memorisation of lyrics and familiarisation with traditional music.
They have made fires from scratch, named all necessary tools and materials, talked about fire safety, sat around the fire while having hot chocolate, listened to stories and sang along nursery rhymes, introduced themselves and so much more. Forest School not only develops children’s confidence, self-esteem, creativity and independence, it also enables risk taking and exploration skills. These have been incredibly enriching experiences for our EAL groups.
