Beautiful Butterflies by Oaks and Firs

Group 1 from Oaks and Firs enjoyed a busy morning doing lots of exciting things!

They learnt how to hold and safely use a hammer. Then learnt how to make a Hapazome picture, by selecting  a leaf or flower head, placing inside our cotton butterfly, folding it in half…and then bashing it with the hammer. The shape and colour transferred onto the cloth, just like magic!

Elsewhere, individual butterfly pictures were created, using natural resources collected from the forest floor…P1130067P1130068P1130069P1130090P1130082P1130084P1130081

There was also a lot of work going on in the digging pit! Buried under the soil, were all the things the Hungry Caterpillar had eaten. The children found and dug up the food cards then matched them to the big pictures, working out which day of the week the caterpillar had eaten them on.

Mums and dads…you should be very proud! In a relatively short space of time, our little Oaks and Firs have become so much more independent and chatty, they are working and playing together better, beginning to help one another, are turn taking and have developed a good understanding of the rules and boundaries of Forest School. They are an absolute pleasure to work with.
