Why a reflection swing?
Swinging not only supports gross and fine motor skills but it also develops balance , strength and spatial awareness.
I will be putting up the swing during our forest school sessions ,not just to swing on , but to provide a place to reflect upon during and after experiences. I always feel reflection sessions are vital for learners to reflect upon their time in the woods as it helps to consolidate learning and facilitate deeper thinking.
