Forest School News

21st October 2019

Conkers proved to be very popular today, due to our exciting conker run! Both Firs and Willows enjoyed rolling them down the long tubes and listening out for the sound as the conkers rolled into the crates at the end.
 
Firs class loved painting with mud last time they were out in Forest School, so we re-visited this today…with the added  twist of using their hand prints to give their spider pictures some legs…
 
Many of the children in Firs are very new to school (and Forest School) but they have settled brilliantly and although it’s only their 3rd session, they’re now showing us how much more adventurous, curious and confident they can be!
 
Willows started off their afternoon watching a beautiful white -bottomed bumble bee, who looked as if she was a little weary. She sat on this stick flapping her wings, but didn’t have the energy to fly away. Some of  the  children were fascinated in watching her.
 
Everyone was fully immersed in their chosen activities. From collecting natural resources, to cooking in the mud kitchen, using tools, swinging, and looking closely at plants, all of the children were focused, engaged and happily communicating with the adults and one another…
 
And what a lovely end to their half term of lessons…the fairy village had a beautiful and very careful make-over today! Just look at how great it looks after it had been worked on by our very clever little girl and some of her friends…
Spiders and a spikey hedgehog
 
This morning, Beeches worked hard to make these super spiders, using pine cones, pipe cleaners and googly eyes!
 
We were very  proud of the spiders and at the end of the morning, they were displayed in our outdoor classroom- Hollies…
 
We also worked together using our fine motor skills and lots of concentration, to make this pumpkin hedgehog.
 
We took turns to carefully hold the hammer and tap some sticks into the pumpkin…
 
We also enjoyed some music making using things we found on the ground and adding them to lidded boxes. We discovered that some things made a soft sound and others made a very loud sound! We played and sang together on our Forest School stage.
