Oaks and Firs

It was another wonderful morning of discovery for children in group 2 of Oaks and Firs this week. We found some guttering and used it to pour water down…the children were fascinated and played until we had used up all the water we had!

Then this ingenious bunch thought of their own ideas! They rolled pine cones down the guttering and noticed how some rolled better than others. They observed, pointed out, were interested in and then shared their discovers with the adults and with their peers. We saw lots of very natural turn taking and sharing going on.

Some children didn’t stop there! Even more investigation took place…they searched around the site to see if they could find something else to place at the top of the guttering. And tried to out-do one another with finding the biggest stone possible!

This look of excitement and pleasure was a real sight to see!

And of course, lots of other adventures were happening all across our Forest School site…

Including a little digging, pouring, mixing…then decorating the area with mud paint!

Well done group 2…we all loved our morning watching you learning and experimenting. Roll on next time…

      That’s great to hear…thank-you for looking! Your little man certainly enjoys Forest School and has become so much more confident and involved as the term has progressed.

        Great news! It’s encouraging to hear positive feedback about the little man’s progress, thank you. He really enjoyed looking at the photos and naming his school pals too. His initial surprise when he realised the nature of photos, was a joy to see! Keep up the great work…
