How Can You Help?
Please provide a pair of wellingtons for your child to wear.
Check the wellies regularly in case your child has outgrown them.
Do include a pair of thick socks with the wellies for them to wear, as their feet can feel quite cold.
Do encourage them to talk about what they did or made during Forest School sessions.
Some of the activities you can repeat with your child in the park, they will enjoy doing it with you - take the handouts for ideas.
Attend one of the sessions or become a volunteer!
