Introducing Stick Man…


This week, both Larches and Maples listened intently to the story ‘Stick Man’. We’ll be using it as a stimulus for lots of Forest School activities this term…and hoping that the children come up with plenty of their own ideas about what they’d like to do whilst outside.

The sessions started off with a story picture hunt…the children were challenged to find and match the characters and pictures from the Stickman story. Some were more difficult to find than others! We were impressed with how independently the children completed the challenge…and how well they helped one another too.

What a surprise we had when we spotted this big Stickman in Langley Forest School! We shook his hand and welcomed him.

Everyone was keen to make their own stickman, so set off to find a special ‘Y’ stick, that could be used to create their stick man legs. A careful bit of twisting with a pipe cleaner, and stickman’s arms were complete.

Connor learnt how to make a clove-hitch knot..and then worked really hard to lash his stickman arms onto the body with string

As always, there was plenty of opportunity to choose activities…and this week the mud kitchen was very busy.

 

There was also a great game of hide and seek going on…and some very special ‘decorating’ too!

    Wow Maples you look like you are having so much fun in the forest. I love the stick men you have all made and cannot wait to see what you do next week.

      Hello Miss Wilkins!
      Maples asked to add more bits to their stick men at the end of their session, so look out for how they do it this week! And Miles suggested that we could build a house for stick man…I’m sure that there will be lots of great photos coming up soon.
      Get well soon…we miss you xx
