Today Gruffalo class walked over to the BIG woods for the first time. It was a very rainy day, but that didn’t stop us! 🙂
We all walked sensibly in pairs across the road using the zebra crossing and then followed the path to the woods. On the way we spotted that lots of trees had lost their leaves and the children could tell me that this was because it is Autumn.
When we got to the woods we found a spot to set up camp and the adults made a shelter to protect us from the rain. We all sang the Forest School song.
We talked about our new rules when exploring the bigger woods, like where our boundaries are, and what we should do if a dog comes into Forest School. Then the children all had time to explore and found lots of interesting things to look at, like mushrooms and fungi growing, and rabbit holes.
Towards the end of the morning the rain got heavier, so we went inside a very large bush, with a huge log inside to sit on. Here we listened to Mrs Read read us a story called ‘Stanleys Stick’.
At the end of the morning we all walked safely back to school, and were all ready for lunch by the time we got back!!
Well done Gruffalo Class, I was very proud of you today!
Mrs Read 🙂
