Bugs and Beads

posted 7 Jul 2017, 04:29 by Rosy Ritchie

In our penultimate forest session we thought about bugs and minibeasts. We took 5 minutes to hunt them down and discovered that the forest is an excellent home for lots more than the creatures  we have thought about in our sessions so far. We discovered millipedes, centipedes, woodlouse, spiders, worms and much  more. The children were confident with handling and looking at our findings and we chatted a little about their habitats and food.

After our snack we all sawed, whittled and threaded some Elder beads. Our nature jewellery looked truly lovely.

Forest Homework: Bring a grown up (and sibling if you have one available) to the forest next week. Show them where all our forest fun has been happening this term.
