Mud, Mud, Glorius Mud!
We have all had the best morning. When it has rained all night there's nothing else for it but embracing the muddiness!
The children painted beatiful pictures, the trees and even themselves.
We measured and weighed things and collected water from every small puddle we could find.
Lots of the children were fascinated by the water chutes and created long lengths using gravity and logs to help the water find its way. This showed great team work and STICKABILITY.
A lovely morning exploring pumpkins, becoming mud scientists and imagining with sticks.
The Three Bears left us a letter asking us to follow their trail and collect apples for their porridge!
We followed the oat arrows, it all felt alot like a story we have been learning about in class.
When we got to the orchard there were lots of apples to collect but we had sneaking suspician we were being watched! There was a black cat, an evil cackel and a poisened apple which could only mean one thing, A WITCH!
We took our apples back to the forest for the bears but we were so worried about the witch we thought we had better make some potions and try and trick her into drinking them.
Inspired by National Seed Collecting Week we spent some time collecting seeds from the plants and trees growing in our forest. This gave lots of lovely opportunity to explore, identify and discuss seeds and where to find them.
Our poem by Laurance Dunbar was lovely and taught us that even though we are small we can have a big, positive impact on the world.
We have been discussing what lives in our forest. The children shared ideas about habitats and how they suited the animals needs.
mall groups shared ideas and identified which areas some of our native species would choose to live.
There was lots of opportunities to explore and discover the forest after the summer break.
