Little nippers get muddy at Degibna woods

Degibna Woods at Penrose echoed to the sounds of 25 little voices as the youngest members of Nansloe Academy (aged 4 and 5 years old) explored on Friday morning.

With a remit to ‘get muddy and enjoy it’ from Teacher Steve Osborne, the youngsters really made the most of their morning, splashing in the stream, wading through the mud and finishing it all off with a welcome cup of hot chocolate.

Even with a full curriculum Steve maintains that it is important for the children to have free time to explore at their own pace and without a prescribed outcome to the activity.

The school will be continuing to use Penrose for its activities with more classes getting outdoors to explore and broaden their curriculum in future.
