Feelings In the Forest Fridays!!
The children named this regular P5 activity, which became the highlight of our week!
The children created their own little journals using pieces of sugar paper, string and a choice twig to hold it all together!
We took our journals to the forest initially to decorate them, but it evolved into a weekly practice whereby the children sought out a quiet space (usually alone, sometimes with a friend) to either complete a private journal entry or just to have quiet time to reflect.
Feelings in the Firest Fridays became a really special peaceful time, for both the adults and the children, replacing (through the children’s choice) the chaos of “Golden Time” on a Friday afternoon.
