Making sweet forest music…

Group 2 from Oaks and Firs had a fabulous morning making music, singing songs and making their own forest-style shakers!

We used tyres, pots, sticks, planks of wood, saucepans and an old oil drum, to create musical instruments. It was very loud…and really quite tuneful!¬†P1130283P1130285P1130284P1130291P1130292P1130288

Phew! All this singing and playing is exhausting!

After several songs and turns on each of the different ‘instruments’, the children chose a pot to make a special forest shaker. They added¬†natural resources such as sticks, stones and leaves to their pots and really enjoyed shaking them to another song.

It was really lovely in this group’s last session, to see some of our youngest children working so independently on their task. As we observe them week by week, we are all noticing what a big difference the Langley forest magic is making to so many areas of the children’s development.

    He certainly does love being outside! This was last year…and I’m sure that he’s going to love his time in Forest School again this term.
