A barrel of laughs…!

Another chilly day today, but (with a few extra layers on) it didn’t stop us having a marvellous time in Forest School. Oaks children found a great way to keep warm…they pulled a big barrel onto the path and worked together to roll it from one end of our site to the other. They problem solved along the way, working out how to move it when it got stuck, finding lots of different uses for it like laying over it and rolling from one side to the other and standing it upright and using it to make (very loud!) music. And in true Forest School style, we saw great team work too-and lots of helping and supporting one another.

Also this morning…Oaks were busy with ropes, raking, trying out new ways of using the swing, climbing, playing with wood discs, building towers…and a spot of Bollywood dancing and music making in the mud kitchen!

This afternoon, Firs had lots of Autumn fun climbing the leaf hill! They sat, lay and rolled in the leaves and really enjoyed throwing them up into the air.

The children kept active on the ropes, balancing on logs and along the digging pit, climbing, using the balance beams and making cup of forest tea in the mud kitchen!
