Hello, I am Mrs Waterworth and I am Our Lady of Lourdes' Forest School Leader. When leading sessions, I am known to the children by my Forest School name, 'Michelle Monkey'.
My Level 3 training journey began in October 2018, where I spent a week at Sunnybrow Nursery for the introductory sessions of becoming a Forest School Leader. Throughout the year, I have had to complete weekly practical sessions with children and other adults. Also I have completed a portfolio of work containing 61 different components. To complete my qualification, I had to return to Sunnybrow Nursery for a week in June to complete a practical assessment and 'Outdoor First Aid' training. All of which I passed successfully.
I am continually finding ways to develop our Forest School with the children, training other adults and providing lots of outdoor learning opportunities. Included are weekly after school outdoor sessions too.
We have been very fortunate that Mrs Lindley, 'Anna Anaconda' on the Forest, has undertaken all her training and after full assessment completion has become a Forest School Leader. A huge 'Congratulations' to Mrs Lindley for all her hard work. She brings so much creativity to enhance the Forest School experience for all our children.
