A tiny house for mouse

Beeches were really excited today to find a trail leading them through the forest…a trail scattered with tiny seeds.

They followed it, until it led them to a tiny house…

…where they found a tiny letter waiting for them.

Everyone wanted to help the mouse to rebuild his friend’s houses…and they immediately set off to create some pretty amazing mouse homes!

Everyone worked incredibly hard. We were so proud of how much thought, time and effort went into helping the little mouse. We all really enjoyed looking at and commenting on every single mouse house…and they were described by the children as ‘amazing’ ‘fantastic’ ‘wonderful’ ‘brilliant’ ‘so clever’ and ‘fabulous’!

We even had a grand opening for this last mouse house! Jamali had made a ribbon across the entrance, which we cut after an opening speech, to lots of applause from all his friends!

¬†Once we’d had hot chocolate, Lee spent the rest of the session extending and improving his house…until it developed into a fantastic mouse hotel. He was very proud of his work.

Our last house was very different to the rest. It was big enough for not just a mouse, but Mr C too! We decided that even a Gruffalo would be able to fit inside. Which gave us a great idea for next week….

At the end of our session, we reflected on our morning, with our new ‘feelings pebbles’. The most popular pebbles chosen and talked about were the ‘loved it’, ‘happy’ and ‘funny’ ones. Beeches certainly did have a lot of fun.

    What a fabulous time Aoife had in forest school. Aoife absolutely loved the Gruffalo story and really enjoyed helping to make a new mouse house. Aoife chatted about forest school all the way home from school.

      Bless her! Im so glad that she could tell you all about it and that she enjoyed building her mouse house. I enjoyed that session as much as the children did…and felt very proud of their efforts.
