Week 1 Forest School Agreement and Kites - The children had a quick identification lesson as we tried to locate some of the plants to avoid. Then, another windy day so the DIY kites were out!
Week 2 - Tree Rubbings - We were blessed with a lovely dry day so we were able to use paper and get some super tree rubbings. Children used their observation skills to look for variations in the bark patterns.
Week 3 - Den Building - Storm Ciara hadn’t been very kind to our stick den, so, we built a new one! We talked about where would be a better location so that it wouldn’t be so exposed to the elements, and hopefully, last a bit longer.
Week 4 - Enjoying the Rain - Definitely the wettest Forest School day so far this year. But, we didn’t let it dampen our spirits: We enjoyed it! Lots of fun to be had splashing and jumping in puddles.
Week 5 - Tree Spirits - Many years ago, folk believed that everything had a spirit, even the trees. People would make images of the spirits, so, we had a try ourselves with some clay and natural objects that we could find.
Week 6 - Free Play - A full session of free play! Great to see what the children chose to access at the end of their 6 week programme. We had lots of tree climbing, hammock or rope swinging and mixing fairy potions.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
