On Sunday 31st October, Pownall Hall School hosted its first Halloween Forest School themed event in association with Forever Wild Forest School.
The event was a huge success and was fully booked with local children and their parents attending. The Halloween themed event, which was aimed at children between the ages of 18 months and 7 years, provided numerous natural based activities including making wood sliced pumpkins, clay spiders, twig wands and broomsticks.
As well as craft activities, there was time for the children to explore the Forest School. There was a potions laboratory with varying sizes of bottles and coloured water for mixing, there were pumpkins for hammering and a Halloween themed sensory tray as well as Halloween decorations in abundance.
Headmaster at Pownall Hall School, David Goulbourn, said: "We are delighted to be working with Forever Wild Forest School to host a variety of events for the whole community to attend. Our beautiful Forest School is the perfect setting for children to enjoy nature and all the benefits of being in the great outdoors.
Emma Yates, Forever Wild Forest School added: "We are thrilled to be working with Pownall Hall School to bring Forever Wild Forest School to Wilmslow. Forest School experiences can be so beneficial to the mental and physical health of people of all ages and can also help to support children in particular, to develop social and academic skills too.
"We are delighted that the beautiful setting in the grounds of Pownall Hall School offers such a wonderful outdoor environment for our community to discover, explore and reconnect with nature. Come along to enjoy all the benefits that our forest school sessions have to offer you and your family at our new woodland haven at Pownall Hall School in Wilmslow!"
