Session 3

Today was a very special day because  it was Colliers Green's 110th birthday! The children came to school wearing fashions from each of the decades between 1908 and 2018 so it was  decided that  Forest School would take place in our school grounds this week.


The children enjoyed exploring the orchard and playing traditional games. The challenge was to make the games from natural materials.
