Reflect... forest school asks participants to reflect. On the session, tasks, what they learned, what they enjoyed. Older children can articulate this in different ways through talking, making, creating and play. In our group with the youngest participants we follow a rhythm each session which starts with songs and ends with songs and a story. Each session the story dolls wake from their basket and go to play in the woodland. The children gather items to set the scene... this week they offered golden beech leaves, a plastic duck and a knitted hat. The dolls play as the children played, do what the children did throughout the session. Then they return home, singing goodbye to each child in turn before being tucked up in ‘bed’ in a blanket of stars. Children as young as 18 months join this activity. Placing the dolls, adding items to the scene and tucking the dolls up at the end of the story. These dolls have been enjoying the woodland and well loved for well over a year.
