We collected colourful autumn leaves and made leaf mobiles. This was great for our fine motor skills of threading and tying. It was fun in the dome listening to the rain outside!
This time, we made sure we got our bulbs in and around the borders at the front of school. We planted lots of daffodils and some other more exotic bulbs which we hope will blossom in early Spring next year. Keep your eyes peeled around then!
During Forest Schools, we planted some strong scented herbs into one of our planters. We thought this would be a great area to open the senses to different smells. Run your hands through the leaves next time your pass here and smell the different aromas.
Children in forest school had fun making rafts in the rain. We read the story of Tyrannosaurus Drip and wondered what would have happened in the story if the T-Rex’s had rafts to cross the swamp! We talked about floating and sinking.
