Year 1 have been very busy in the forest the last two weeks from making dens to feeding the birds we have got up to allsorts.
Year 1 have been listening very carefully in the forest to see if we can hear the fairies returning, however we noticed we could hear lots of birds tweeting. With this in mind, Year 1 have been working together to make bird feeders for the birds. The children then choose the trees they wanted to hang the feeders in and Miss Leatherland tried her best to put them as high up as she could. Can you tell someone how we made the feeders?
We have been playing lots of fun games in the forest, including one, two, three where are you and sleeping dragons. The children thoroughly enjoyed having to sneak around to make sure they did not wake the dragon or get caught!!!
Today in forest school, Matilda class have been using the resources in the forest to make dens. In groups the children searched high and low for different sticks to form the structure of their den. Once the children had arranged the structure and the roof they began adding home comforts such as a pot of magic soup and a spade as a spoon. Additionally, due to it being very muddy from the rain, the children have been on the hunt for bugs and boy did they find a lot!! Miss Leatherland and Ms Morrison were very impressed with the amount of worms the children found hiding under the logs. The children were very careful when using magnifying glasses to take a closer look!
We have had such fun in forest school the last two weeks! I can’t wait to see what we get up to next week!
