Introduction

Every week, our Monday morning pre-school session is a 'Muddy Mondays' session, held in the woodland area of our playing fields.

Come rain or shine, we go to the woods. This can be the most popular part of the week for many children and we often find that the quieter children find their confidence at ‘Muddy Mondays’.

Children have the opportunity to get involved in all sorts of outdoor activities like:

  • Tree climbing
  • Den building
  • Hunting for mini-beasts
  • Making mud pies and mud sculptures
  • Using tools
  • Craft activities

The children come back tired and dirty but happy with stories of their adventures and pockets full of treasure they have found. The pre-school is still open during ‘Muddy Mondays’ sessions for children who aren’t up for an outdoor adventure.
