Nature Rangers Sessions at Bumpkins Pre-School

We are proud to launch our Nature Rangers learning environment and outdoor classroom on our field area at Bumpkins Pre-School.
Our Nature Rangers sessions are based on the Forest School ethos.
This is an inspirational process that develops children’s self-esteem through hands-on learning in a woodland or natural environment with trees.
Our own Nature Rangers sessions will take place on our Pre-School field area, to support our children’s development and understanding of the natural world.
Sarah C will be running our sessions.  She has a Level 2 Forest School qualification and she will be supported by the Pre-School team.

Bumpkins Nature Rangers offer our children the chance to try more adventurous activities under adult supervision, such as climbing trees and using wood work equipment.
They are encouraged to explore the natural environment using all their senses and become aware of their surroundings.  Nature Rangers will continue to support all areas of the children’s development following the Early Years Foundation Stage and allow them opportunities to be physically active in the fresh air, whatever the weather!
In extreme weather conditions however, activities will be provided within the outdoor classroom. The activities will be child-led and allow them to work independently or with other children, helping to develop their social skills, problem solving abilities and creativity.

 

Here are some examples of the kind of activities the children will be participating in:
