Wow, Wow WOW!

…is what the adults kept saying all morning, at the wonderfully creative ideas Maples class demonstrated!

Last week, while investigating with buckets and ropes during our ‘make a well’ challenge, the children showed a real interest in using the ropes. So this week, the ropes came back out, and they were given the task of creating something using both ropes and sticks. Look at all the brilliant ideas…

Hold on tight! Ready to go water skiing…without getting wet!

Lots of fun was had, pulling this very heavy log along the forest floor…it made a great path clearer!

Here is our very own super-hero ‘spiderboy’…using his rope to swing from tree to tree and shooting spider-webs from his wrists!

Next we have Mr. Resilient…who spent almost the whole morning trying out different ways of making his zip wire work. After moving to different trees, tying the rope at different heights and trying out different seats, he finally got it working!And gave us a demonstration..to huge cheers from the rest of the class!

A wonderful example here of a kind caring young lady, who thought about what her classmate would like to play with. Firstly she used some sticks to bounce on the rope and sing to her friend…then added saucepans to create their own forest drum kit! The sound of sweet music could be heard from afar!

Time for a ride on the forest roller coaster!

Anyone for fishing? You catch some great things in Langley Forest School! And how about trying out the new saw…keep pulling back and forth and the tree will eventually fall down!

And last but by no means least-a lot of hard work, time and effort, resulted in this lovely campfire cooking station…with sausages and bugs ready to be fried over the fire! P1120605

What a busy morning…Maples also managed to complete their mini-beast wood cookies. They listened carefully to the tool talk, and used the drill safely and sensibly…to make a hole and thread a pipe cleaner through, ready to hang up at home.
