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.
We also have, once a week, an Outdoor after school activities club and we are very fortunate that Mrs Lindley will also be undertaking the Level 3 Forest School Leader training this year.
