We’ve taken the classic Christmas song and given it our very own twist. So join us for a good old fashioned sing-along. We love singing this around our campfire with our kids groups throughout the festive season.
Forest School sessions are all about letting children be in charge of their own learning and giving them the chance to explore wild spaces on their own terms so they can grow emotionally and intellectually. We run plenty of outdoor sessions throughout the winter because we believe that children should have access to great outdoor activities all year round.
Enough of all that though, on with the song…..
We’ve made a series of pictures to celebrate each of our 12 Days, which also showcase many of the awesome activities that children get up to at forest school sessions. You can see these images by scrolling through…
We love singing this round the campfire with the kids through December and you’re very welcome to use this song too. Here’s a run down of the lyrics:
“On the first day of forest school I had the chance to see…
A child climbing in an oak tree.
Two muddy boots
Four crawling bugs
Five golden leaves!
Six kids a whittling
Seven mushrooms sprouting
Eight campfires blazing
Nine shelter builders
Ten monkeys swinging
Eleven axes chopping
Twelve hunters tracking”
Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all.
