We were so excited today as it was time for us to return to our Forest! We were so independent and managed to put on our own forest school clothes and wellies. It was time to set off!
“The stones are crunching” “I’ve never been this way before but I go on walks with mummy and daddy”
We saw lots of interesting things along the way!
“What’s down there?” ” It might be a crocodile or a shark!”
“It looks like snow!” “It’s a spider’s web”
“I like these flowers” “You can’t touch those, they’re for the bumble bees”
We remembered that we shouldn’t touch or eat anything we see growing in the forest.
“They are like little apples” “No they are beries. We can’t eat those. Only animals can eat them”
We were able to hear birds “singing” and “water” as we walked closer to our site. We saw lots of cows “having a sleep” in the field. Finally we arrived and saw the river!!
We had lots of fun exploring the river. We used our nets to see what we could catch!
We had lots of fun throwing stones into the river to see how far they could go and which stones made the biggest splash!
We discovered the big stones made a huge splash and the little stones made a smaller splash.
“There’s lots of bubbles”
We used our wonderful imagination to create our own Forest story!
“I found a tunnel. Maybe an ant lives here” “He’s in the wee hole in there” “Maybe we could give him this rock and it would be his bed” ” No that would be too big for him, this one is smaller. Let’s give him one for his brother” “He needs a kitchen” “He needs a living room and some food” ” The mud can be the food” “The grass can be cucumber, I like cucumber” ” I like cucumber too” “There’s lots of rocks. We made a garden. This is our Forest”
Finally, there was just time for a yummy snack before we walked back to nursery.
We can’t wait to go back to the Forest next week and explore.
