Butterflies and Crowns…and Tadpoles with LEGS!!!

Thursday, 11 July 2019

Oaks and Firs had a busy time out in Forest School this week. After many weeks of checking on the tadpoles in our pond, we finally saw two that had grown their back legs. There was great excitement at this discovery!

After lots of discussion and interest , we headed off to the woods to create these beautiful butterfly pictures using plants from our school grounds and garden…

…and these lovely Willow crowns, using willow cut from our very own Butter-Bee Garden

All of the children have thoroughly enjoyed their Forest School sessions this year-they’ve been very lucky to have experienced our site through Autumn, Winter, Spring and now Summer. They’ve grown so much in confidence, ability, in their social skills, their independence skills and their care and understanding of nature.  Well done Oaks and Firs and have a happy summer…enjoy the outdoors as much as you can!
