Reception Class Forest School: What the Ladybird Saw

Reception Class have been reading ‘What the Ladybird Saw’, by Julia Donaldson and were shocked to hear about Lanky Len and Hefty Hew stealing the mermaid’s hair. In forest school the children spotted signs that Lanky Len and Hefty Hew had been there too! The tell tale signs were:

  • a green wellie
  • some fish
  • glitter in the tyres
  • seaweed
  • a black bandana
  • some mermaid’s hair

After completing an investigation of the area, the children regrouped to evaluate the evidence they had collected and decide on a course of action. It was agreed that the children would work in small groups to set traps around the Forest School area, in order to try and catch these robbers, should they return. 

To end the session the children worked together to make a mermaid model, just like in the story, showing great collaboration skills. Well done Everyone and thank you Mrs Andrews.
