It's been a busy couple of afternoons in Forest School this week.
We have had so many choices of activities available this week for the children to choose to do. We have been planting some bulbs (Narcissuses, Tulips, Crocuses and Alliums) within the woods which we are hoping will show us the start of spring coming later in the school year, there was the choice of making an Autumn crown, Scavenger hunt and den building. Den building is always a firm favourite with our Thurleigh rangers and this week was no different but quite a lot of rangers did enjoy planting bulbs too.
There were over 100 bulbs planted in a variety of locations we just hope the pesky squirrel, who lives in our woods, does not dig them all up and eat them!
All the children seem to have had fun this week and as we have some very creative children within the school as you can imagine the crowns were beautiful. This week for Ash class rangers. Ranger McLaughlin assisted with a small group making a den using tarpaulin! One thing that was said was that this den would be more waterproof than the stick dens! Very true!
I am very much looking forward to next week, when some classes will begin to use simple tools.
