Maples-Loppers, wands blindfolds and more!

Today Maples were given the opportunity to use another tool…this time it was the loppers. The children listened carefully to a tool talk, so that they knew exactly how to hold and use the loppers safely. We also talked about Wizard Lizard’s magic flower wand and wondered if we could create something something ourselves. So off they went, taking turns to choose a special stick that they imagined would make a really good magic wand!

Once the stick was cut, the children set about turning it into a wand…

They looked great! And when we tested the magic, the wands seemed to work very well!

Aside from the magic, other exciting things were happening today…including a trust and co-operative game involving blindfolds. The children took turns to lead one another to a tree, allowing the blindfolded child to feel the tree trunk. Then they were led away by their partner, the blindfold was removed and the children then had to find which tree they had been feeling! It was much trickier than they imagined, but everyone tried very hard and enjoyed the game.

Also…this hard working group of 3 boys spent a long time working together. Apparently, they were digging through the earth to reach both Japan and New York! Unfortunately they ran out of time before reaching there…but there’s always next week!

Then there was the building brigade! An amazing house/block of flats was created from things found around the forest. The slug hidey hole we discovered was covered over again to keep them safe.
