It's been a wonderful last few weeks enjoying our beautiful wood in Forest School.
We have really felt the weather change turning from Autumn to Winter so quickly. We have experienced many weathers of wind, sun, rain and for the last week, frost.
Oaks are really starting to get into the routine of Forest School as they have moved on from whole group activities to having a couple of choices during their sessions. They have also begun den building with sticks plus digging activities where they have made mud paint. In the New Year they will begin using tools to whittle which is very exciting!
Willows, Chestnuts and Ash, as always, have blown my mind every week with their creativity. There have been swings made, leaf angels made, trees climbed, leaf printing with mud, and that's to name a few!
As this last week is in the lead up to Christmas there have been some Christmas activities as an option for them. Some have made a Christmas tree decoration, whittled a Santa and attempted to build a life-size model of Santa's sleigh with sticks and tree stumps! It's been great fun!
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and look forward to seeing the children all in the New Year with their waterproofs, warm clothing and wellies!
