Welcome to Forest School Beeches…

(Please click the photos to enlarge them)

Beeches class began their term of Forest School on Tuesday…and what a great morning we had!

Firstly, we looked at our Forest School Rules and discussed them.

Then we set off to explore the site, playing in different areas and talking about how to be safe whilst doing so. The children enjoyed using the digging pit, mud kitchen, obstacle course, ropes, swing and some of the children tried out our new balancing tree.

Then it was story time…Beeches listened carefully to the story of ‘The Gruffalo’. You can listen to the story here.

Mrs. Smith told us that she’d heard lots of strange animal sounds in the forest…and that she wondered if the purple things she’d spotted this morning, were in fact Gruffalo prickles! We were very excited about going on a Gruffalo prickle hunt! Everyone looked high and low until we had all got 2 purple (wool!) prickles each.

Then we chose a friend to work with. We twisted our 2 prickles together and tied them, to make  a special purple ‘Gruffalo-Gang’ Band!

After hot chocolate and a biscuit, there were lots more interesting things to discover! Rachel was really excited to have found two Gruffalo teeth in the digging pit! She showed her friends and soon there were lots of people hunting for more teeth…

Elsewhere, there were lots of meals being created in the mud kitchen…cookies for the mouse, snake stew and Gruffalo crumble!

What a lovely first session. And Beeches have come up with some great ideas for next week using the Gruffalo teeth they found. Watch this space!
