Outdoor Learning and Risky Play Morning

Thank you to all the parents and grandparents who came along to our Outdoor Learning and Risky Play morning! It was lovely to see so many of you enjoying being outside and learning about how the children learn to be resilient, independent and risky learners. We hope you found this an informative and interesting session, the children loved bringing you along to the forest!
