Acers musical morning

Wednesday, 29 November 2017

Acers had a great time today out in the woods.  They are working and playing together really well now and we saw lots of lovely shared experiences…including a marvellous musical mix-up! The den was turned into a music shop, instruments were made and the beautiful singing and drum beats could be heard throughout the site! Children came and went, many of them offering a song, including a solo of away in a manger by Jude and a lovely round of jingle bells led by Shakira.

Elsewhere, these gorgeous reindeer were being created using natural resources…

Making mud paint was very popular last week and this was requested again today. Our mud  kitchen was given a whole new look, with ‘Forest Brown’ painted all across the back.

And we also enjoyed a warming-up team game called ‘Pass the Pine-cone’. We lined up and raced to pass the cone under our legs and then next time, over our heads!

Oaks and Firs

Saturday, 24 June 2017

It was another wonderful morning of discovery for children in group 2 of Oaks and Firs this week. We found some guttering and used it to pour water down…the children were fascinated and played until we had used up all the water we had!

Then this ingenious bunch thought of their own ideas! They rolled pine cones down the guttering and noticed how some rolled better than others. They observed, pointed out, were interested in and then shared their discovers with the adults and with their peers. We saw lots of very natural turn taking and sharing going on.

Some children didn’t stop there! Even more investigation took place…they searched around the site to see if they could find something else to place at the top of the guttering. And tried to out-do one another with finding the biggest stone possible!

This look of excitement and pleasure was a real sight to see!

And of course, lots of other adventures were happening all across our Forest School site…

Including a little digging, pouring, mixing…then decorating the area with mud paint!

Well done group 2…we all loved our morning watching you learning and experimenting. Roll on next time…
