Some of the Forest school children have been faithfully making bird feeders out of apples, peanut butter and bird seed every now and again, to hang up for the birds over winter. We couldn’t understand how they managed to eat all the apples overnight with nothing left at all. We set up a camera to film overnight when we weren’t there, and now we know what happened! Sneaky squirrels!
It’s been pretty chilly since our return to Forest Schools after the holidays but we’ve still had fun! We’ve been exploring and playing in the woods, playing in the hammock, feeding the birds, crunching frosty leaves and stamping on frozen puddles. I wonder what we’ll get up to next?!
The children at Prospect Bank were very lucky to have the opportunity to attend Beauty and the Beast at the kings theatre. It was a relaxed performance, meaning the house lights stayed on and some of the noises were not as loud as usual, and the children were able to leave their seats and move around should they need to. The performance was sponsored by Cash 4 kids and rowanglen. Everyone has a fantastic time and really enjoyed the experience (and ice cream!!)

This year for children in need we had a dress up/down morning on Fri 16th Nov. Lots of the children and some of the staff dressed up, a lot of ‘onesies’ on show! We raised £111 which is great for such a small school.
