This week the children from Hepworth Class enjoyed their outdoor learning day in our forest school area. They started the session off with a game of '123 where are you' before engaging in a wide array of forest school activities including discovering natural treasures to make artwork, imaginative role play with sticks, making clay faces on the trees and looking for birds with the binoculars. Some of the children enjoyed tyre rolling and den building before congregating around the fire pit to enjoy toasted marshmallows and warming hot chocolate! A fabulous time was had by all! Kandinsky and Van Gogh Class are looking forward to their forest school sessions over the next week.
Meanwhile, back in the classroom we have been busy using natural resources to support our fine motor development skills. We have been using palm drills to make holes in conkers, which we then threaded onto wool to make necklaces and used hole punches to make holes in leaves which we stitched with a running stitch! A big thank you to Nathan who collected all of the conkers with his family!
