Group two had an exciting first week up at Louse Hill Copse for their Forest School learning.
The children had to listen carefully as Teresa talked to them about some of the rules of the forest and what we need to do. They met Teresa's special friend called Bizzy Lizzy who told the children that there are some signs that they needed to look out for!
Can you remember what the signs said?
That's right it said 'Be Careful'! This is to make sure that we do not hurt ourselves on any of the fallen logs, branches that might stick out or the brambles and stinging nettles that are growing in the woods.
After we had found all the be careful signs, we jumped into the classroom where something exciting had happened!!!!
Whilst we were walking to the woods the fairies came to visit our classroom! They even left behind some fairy dust for us to look at.
The animals, with the help from the fairies, left us a letter to look at. It took us a while to find it as they had hidden it really well.
The letter told us that we needed to go on a treasure hunt around the woods to find six special treasures.
They where something soft, round,brown, yellow, fluffy and something special.
We hunted high and low throughout the classroom and found lots and lots of treasure!
After we have found the amazing woodland treasures we met another one of Teresa's friends. Can you remember what it was called? It was Mr Spikey the hedgehog. Mr Spikey was unsure of the season and was confused if he needed to hibernate or if it was summer. Teresa asked Mr Spikey if he would like the children to go around and find out if it was Autumn by playing autumn bingo.
After the children had found lots of items to prove to Mr Spikey that it was Autumn, it was time for Mr Spikey to go and find some shelter so that he could hibernate. Unfortunately Mr Spikey suddenly realised that he has no friends to go to sleep with and help him to stay warm!
The children thought long and hard about the problem that Mr Spikey had and decided that it was very sad that he did not have any friends to go to sleep with. The children decided it would be a good idea to make some friends for Mr Spikey out of natural materials and clay.
Once we had become warm and had a rest we then went and had free play.
We were allowed to make paint with the mud and water, we went digging in the mud for worms. We even made a house for our hedgehog friends to hibernate in.
