This was our first week at Forest Schools, we talked about what we wanted to do during Forest Schools, lots of children wanted to have a go at climbing a tree! We played some games to get us used to the environment, we played 'pass the bogey', '1,2,3 where are you?!' and then we had time to explore on our own. We had a go on the rope swing, this was very fun! Then we had a go at climbing trees and playing in the mud kitchen. We had lots of fun!
This week in Forest Schools Miss Housley told us we were going on a journey to find her little friends! We had to be really quiet and sneak around so that we didn't scare them away! We hid behind trees, crawled behind the hill and ran really fast so we could see them. When we got there we found a special tree called the friendship tree, we gave the tree something to represent how we felt. Miss Housley then told us that her little friends were hiding! The sneezy dragon had blown their houses down! We decided to help them by building them new houses out of sticks, leaves and flowers, hopefully they will be feeling better next week.
This week at Forest School we found a letter from the sneezy dragon! He told us he was very sorry for blowing down our friends houses last week and asked if we could help him to stop sneezing. We decided to make him some medicine and some special drinks to make him feel better. We used mud, flowers, grass and other natural objects to make the drinks. Some of us decided to make the dragon a house as well! We made a small house for the baby dragon and a big house for the mummy dragon! We had lots of fun!
This week at Forest School we found a map to the Enchanted Forest! We worked together to read and follow the map to the Enchanted Forest, when we got there we found a letter from our little friends asking if we could make them some new magic wands, we used sticks and flowers to make the magic wands. We then worked together to make a puppet theatre, we made puppets out of sticks and performed a show!
