Insey Wincy Spider….

It was such a wet day in Forest school this week, that we decided to use the rainwater to our advantage and enjoy some water play!

We started our session with the rhyme ‘Insey-Winsey Spider’…then had a  marvellous time washing our plastic spiders down the drainpipes and catching them again at the bottom. Great fun was had by all!

We made some pine cone spiders too and thought that they would like to try out the water ride…

We also looked at some real spiders and spider pictures then used the bug-hunting equipment to see if we could find some more mini-beasts. We loved using the magnifying glasses…and  making a special Forest School spider out of a tyre and sticks!

The rainwater came in very useful too for our floating and sinking activity. We used lots of natural objects, and enjoyed experimenting and talking about what we could see happening. We also managed to make some little boats by balancing a tiny cone on top of some bark and an acorn on a wood slice!

And as always, nothing stops Oaks and Firs from exploring and having fun, not even non-stop rain!
