Forest School Leader
Forest School has hit the ground running with Reception. The children had fun coming up with their own Forest School names before improvising tales of little people, dragons and fairies. This inspired their den building and friendship bracelets. We had just enough time for reflection and a sing song at the end!
We donned our wellies and waterproofs ready for the torrential rain. This brought about child initiated 'Peppa Pig' style jumping through muddy puddles. We found time to fit in some environmental art with some lovely, creative ideas from the children. We had kites flying, trees, smiley faces and a collage of natural objects. Last but not least, we composed our own forest school song. Our favourite quote of the week from A.Owl:
"BEST DAY EVER!!"
Great to be back at forest school after the Xmas break. We were pleased to hear the children were able to remember their forest school names and actions after what felt like such a long time away. we kicked off the year making a celebration cake for the little people, in true forest school style we used mud for the "cake mix" and the natural environment to decorate them.
Sadly it was Owls last forest school session, but the sun shone and we had a great time celebrating our forest school adventure. We made natures headdresses and we created pictures of our forest school names on woodland discs. We would like to say a final thank you to the children and here's a list of their forest school names Owl, Woodland, Fox, Tree, Leaf, Cat, Apple, Hornet, Jaguar and last but not least Oak. Until next time...Squirrel and Cheetah.
Year 1 Owls
Year 1 enthusiastically set off on their forest school journey, as always picking their forest school names before anything else. We played the bean bag game in order to remember our new forest school names before we entered the world of the little people and goblins. While some children were making miniature dens others were making woodland bracelets. After reflection time the children had fun jumping through muddy puddles with just enough time to have a sing song at the end of the session. WHOOP WHOOP cant wait for next week... what will the forest have next in store for us?
