Squirrel Obstacle Course

What fun we had today!

Mrs. Smith showed the children a letter she had found from Sid Squirrel. It challenged them to create an obstacle course for a squirrel.

The children had to work in teams, use a range of different resources  and get a squirrel from one tree to the next without it touching the ground!

Look at this funny video of a real squirrel obstacle course! We enjoyed watching this.

And now look at how creative the children were when they worked together…

First the children explored the forest and collected all they needed…

Rolling tyres was hard work…but lots of fun!

This group made a bottle rocket, a tube slide, a cargo net, and a swing…with a big jump at the end for the squirrel  to get to his food!

This group made a brilliant look-out post. They worked really hard together, all helping to carry the enormous log through the forest to their tree.

These children made a trampoline and a slide. They decorated the start of their course with red material.

This group made a very high obstacle course! It had lots of things on it, including a tyre ladder, pipe tunnels and a bottle carrier…and we think that a real squirrel may be using it before next week’s lesson!

    What amazing obstacle courses – the squirrel will be very busy trying them all out. Well done Acers !!

  2. Loved the article.I’m currently blogging myself over at my site, talking about autism and how it changes; and for the most part; doesn’t have to change your life.
