Foundation Group 1…wiggly worms

This week, Group 1 from Oaks and Firs had their first Forest School session of the year. They had a lovely time exploring and using the site, and enjoyed finding the ‘wiggly worms’ hidden around the area.

Once they’d found a ‘worm’, the children looked around for a suitable stick to wrap it around…there was lots of discussion about whether the stick should be long or short, thick or thin, bumpy or straight…but everyone chose their own perfect stick.

Wrapping the ‘worm’ around the stick was tricky, but with a bit of practice, we had excellent results…  

Later on, we looked in the digging pit for real worms, and found LOTS! The children were fascinated and learnt how to carefully hold the worms on the palm of their hand. Even those who were a little unsure at first, were soon keen to feel and observe the worms as they curled, twisted and slithered across their hands. Well done Group 1…we were very impressed!

 

Lots of fun was had during the morning, including cooking in the mud kitchen, using the obstacle course, investigating with the balance scales, climbing…and this lovely kind sharing on the swing!
