Gruffalo mud painting with Foundation Group 1

Group 1 from Oaks and Firs started off their morning in Forest School, with the Gruffalo story…then they went on a little adventure! In small groups, they hunted round the site to find 4 different Gruffalo colours…orange for his eyes, white for his teeth and claws, purple for his prickles and black for his long black tongue. Each colour was wrapped around a stick…

Everyone loves the digging pit…and soon after we were all finding treasures, worms, feathers and stones. We decided to try mixing some soil with a little water, to make mud…then after a lot of investigating and mixing and looking and talking about what the mud looked and felt like, we chose a Gruffalo character picture to paint. 

And with paint left, we decided to paint lots more things!

We also had a surprise visitor in the digging pit today-the first ladybird of the season! Everyone enjoyed looking at her as she sat inside a shovel and said hello to all the children in turn!

And of course, a morning in the forest isn’t complete without a go on the swing…or a chance to climb a tree!
