Look closely and you will see how the children have been highly creative in their constructions. They have built using various methods and with different reasoning and for different purposes. They have solved problems both in their imagination and physically in making their constructions stand up.
This morning Mrs. T’s class came to forest school for their first time. They were great, really embracing it and despite the rain had a great time. We did some teamwork games, made friendship bracelets and went on a journey to discover the little people who live in the woods.
Some of them decided how to repair the accidental damage that had been wrought to the little peoples village by sneezy the dragon and set to work. Other children constructed full size dens using materials they could find in the woods, and later used tarpaulins to provide shelter from the train.
Later, in the rain, the toddler group really liked the little peoples village, particularly the dragons den and they set about making improvements, creating a garden for the dragon. They also really enjoyed the puddles, splashing, jumping and even sitting in them.
