Abacus offering Forest School sessions for pre-schoolers

Abacus Pre-School Forest School session in Savages Wood, Bradley Stoke.

Abacus Pre-School is proud to be developing Forest School sessions for the children who attend any of the Abacus settings, currently located in Bradley Stoke, Filton and Mangotsfield.

Layla, who manages Abacus @ Baileys Court, is undertaking her Forest School Level 3 qualification, enabling her to provide a six-session course for the children and their families. She passionately believes that Forest School allows children to learn through their senses, encouraging the development of strong leadership skills.

The Abacus team have been busy tidying a part of Savages Wood, Bradley Stoke so they can hold the sessions in a safe, fun outdoor environment. The children will be taught how and why it is important to look after our local natural environment, along with how to use real tools safely, whilst building camp fires for toasting marshmallows. Fun activities will include getting creative making name tags, necklaces, leaf crowns, flower presses, clay creatures and much more messy play.

They are hoping to run their next Forest School sessions after the October half-term for more forest fun. “Wellington boots at the ready! We look forward to you joining us,” says Layla.
