Our Friday forest school group had missed a day before the holidays so today they spent their last forest day exploring a new site. The Friday group decided that the new site was FUN! We loved the river, the ducks and the butterflies. We also loved the flowers, snack in the sun, climbing the tree and fishing! We actually loved so many things we can’t list them all. We all agreed that this has been the best forest day ever!
Today was our second day for forest school and we did a great job of remembering the rules; we all stand in a circle called sticky toes.
To mark out our boundaries we make sure we can still see each other.
we had great fun just hanging around.
Before sitting down for a snack of hot chocolate and a biscuit, yum yum.
We had a really time busy digging and investigating the leaves with our magnifying glass.
Even the horses came over to say hello before we left.
Today was our final week at Forest School so we had some special treats.. Pieces and Sausage, Hot Chocolate and Marshmallows!!
The children have enjoyed visiting the forest over the last 4 weeks and have always been greeted by some friendly visitors..
The children have said that their favourite part of going to the forest has been creating mud monsters.. look at these scary faces!
E, R and S even found some sticks on the ground that they could recognise as letters and numbers.
S – ”Look! it’s like a number 4”
E – ”I have this letter in my name, its a letter Y”
R – ”R is in my name, it’s at the start of it, I can write it too”
Today was the Tuesday Forest School Group’s first day and what fun they had.
Mud was the order of the day and the muddier the better!
Rolling down the hill – dizzy fun!
It is so lovely when the horses hear the children’s voices they come rushing over to see them.
This video captures the excitement and joy of running through the mud.
We found lots of puddles on the way to Forest School and had great fun splashing in them!
We practiced balancing and of course investigating the mud.
Today the children were so busy and engaged in lots of forest experiences including, swinging, climbing, building and teamwork.
From today we will be sharing the learning and play that is happening in our playrooms and in the outdoors. It is unfortunate that our parents and carers are not able to come inside and see what their child is learning but we hope to share some of that with you on our blog.
On Friday, we had our first Forest School session and it was muddy fun for all as you can see in these photos.
