Pre-school spent the whole afternoon in the Forest School area today. They worked in groups and took part in a range of activities: taking charge of the ‘Treasure Basket’ and collecting leaves to match to the trees they came from, using a leave identification chart to find out the names of the trees the leaves came from, role play using clipboards and in the digging area they jumped in muddy puddles and made curious concoctions.
After all that excitement they made camp and enjoyed a well earned hot squash and a banana, before setting off to collect sticks to add to the bug hotel. The children were fascinated by the bug hotel and lots of them chose to spend time just watching it to see who came to visit!
The session ended with rolling down the hill and a game of 1-2-3 Where are You?
Thank you Mrs Andrews for a wonderful afternoon.
