Gruffalo class took a long walk through the woods this morning to take a closer look at things on their way to Forest School. The children were very observant and enjoyed finding things that were the same or different since our last visit.
We found some new snowdrops growing through the fallen leaves, and some other new plants too. Some children took the time to have a closer look using a magnifying glass. Together we identified the flower, petals, stem and leaf on the plant.
Other children enjoyed collecting new things from the forest floor. We talked about the different things we had found and the textures we could feel. For example, soft spongy moss, dry crunchy leaves and smooth pointy grass.
