Marvellous medals

Today, children in Oaks and Firs  enjoyed a lovely sunny day in Forest School…in huge contrast to the very wet day we had last week! We managed to fit lots of things into our sessions today, including…

Learning to use the hand drill…The children drilled a hole into a wood slice, then decorated it with lots of colours, before threading it with string to make a medal.  They all really enjoyed the new experience…and were very proud of their medals. We’ll continue with this next week so everyone who wants to have a go, gets the opportunity.

Looking for (and at) mini-beasts…

What fabulous interest and engagement…outdoor learning at it’s best!

We found an interesting creature today…which we didn’t recognise. A little bit of research and investigation led us to the conclusion that our mystery guest was a beetle lavae. He was great to watch!

Collecting and counting…On the way into the woods today, we found lots of catkins on the ground. We collected them and used them to count. Some children collected other things they found…and did some great counting using their fingers to help them!

 

…self selected activites-and lots of busy children.
