Our project was delivered by ‘The Nest Project’ who came to our school site to deliver 4 sessions on environmental outdoor art. We were able to use a wooded area for the project. This allowed us to reach 80 children. Their parents were invited to join and around 20 took us up on the offer. Each session was a carousel of activities focused upon emotional literacy – planned vocabulary was delivered and children has to opportunity to talk about their feeling and the idea of being safe. Activities included creating a collaborative nest, dens, bug houses, shelters for toys and clay creatures to hide safely in the woods.
80 children were able to access the project, 20 parents attended over the 4 sessions and 10 members of staff. We will also be able to include future children using the skills the staff learned during the project.
