We have kicked off our National Tree Week celebrations here at Cookridge Primary with sessions aimed at promoting, using and celebrating trees! We have played games using loose parts from trees, created dens with fires and emergency exits and role-played scenarios from our recent castle topic! Pupils also used different coloured pastels to create tree and leaf rubbings to help develop their artistic skills whilst others created trees (including their roots, branches and leaves) using loose parts on the grass. Finally, children also had the opportunity to do some meditation in the trees with our outdoor yoga and hammocks. Whilst there, pupils focused on their breathing and tuning into nature, helping them to feel relaxed. We also discussed the important role trees can play in our mental health and why it is important to look after the trees we have in our school grounds as well as those at home.
