Dentastic fun!

The sun shone bright and warm for our second visit to the forest today. The children walked with a confident pace into the forest. Noticing the bird calls, woodland notices and spring buds and flowers on the way in. We sent our special helper and Abi into our forest boundary to hide, then we were able to play 1,2,3 Where Are You to find them. 

We found colourful eggs in our forest area and talked about why theses ones were easy to find. We were surprised to find a brown egg that no one had noticed. This helped us to make observations about camouflage and the colours of the forest. 

At snack a small band of children were in charge of organising the mugs and heaped teaspoons of hot choc powder. After, we made dens big enough for us to have our picnic lunches in. New skills being acquired include: Tying knots, using bungees, hanging tarps and much creative design thinking. Alex and her friends made a rope hurdle to play 'egg tennis' over! 

Next week we are creating dragons and horses from Natural resources and socks. This fits in with our St Georges Day work.
