Forest School Today

Last week the children watched me make a swing with rope and a sturdy stick for the seat. Today, they tried to make their own swing which was brilliant to watch! Here they are climbing up the tree to throw the rope over.

Later, the children thought they saw a sea monster in the river.  We decided to get a closer look by standing on the riverbank.

There was definitely one in there or maybe more – the children were convinced! And we just love swings.

Technology

The children have been using their problem solving skills to design and work together to create some architecture buildings. We have also been using our imagination with the blocks to create characters from our favourite movies. Some children have been exploring schematic play , through using the blocks to enclose items they have gathered in the Family Centre.

Architects, builders beware – check out what the Cartmill children have been up to……………..they even tidy up after themselves 😁😁😁

Cartmill children have created a fantastic bridge!

Well done for using the tools  safely

Boys working together, good job

A new stormtrooper house

The boys understand the routine of the nursery and tidied up when they had finished.

 

Building bridges for the Gingerbread Man

This week for World Book Week we have been learning about “The Gingerbread Man” story. We have included recycled resources in the block area to explore ways to build a bridge for the gingerbread man to cross over the water.

“I can make a tall bridge”

“My gingerbread man is jumping up and down”

“My gingerbread man fell in the water”

“Lets make a really big bridge”
