Forest Kindergarten morning group

The morning children had a great time at Forest Kindergarten this week! We spent time investigating bugs, climbing trees & used our imagination to pretend we were at the café! We are beginning to develop our understanding of risks & keeping ourselves safe #forestkindergarten

PM Forest Visit

The afternoon children had a lovely time at the Forest on Tuesday.  They learned about making boundaries in the Forest and where is safe to go.  They learned the rules of the Forest and how to manage risk in their play.  The children were fully encouraged to take safe risks and we will build on this each week.  The children explored the Forest floor and searched for bugs whilst matching them to a bug chart.  The children spent time climbing trees and making mud.

The Green Group have been learning about animals

The children have been learning about a range of animals, where they live, what they like to eat and can identify their patterns.  We have been working hard to copy and create our own patterns.  We have also been using our imagination to create our own zoo/animal park and taking on the role of the Zoo Keeper, ensuring our animals are fed.  We have been participating in movement games like Funky Monkey and Old McDonald’s Farm, and are able to co-ordinate our bodies and make good attempts to move like the animals.  We had fun catching some fish and were able to count how many fish we caught and sort and group them according to their pattern.
