Foundation 2 will be doing Forest School every Friday morning.
If your child could bring in a pair of wellies to wear during their Forest School, that would be greatly helpful. Any questions, or concerns please come and see us.
Fruit juice printing!
This was a very exciting and fun forest schools! We had different flower templates. We also had some different fruits, e.g. oranges and berries, etc. We had to use different tools to smash the juice out of the fruits onto the flower templates. We had to carefully think about the colours and where we wanted the juice to come out onto the flower.
Wow - we had so much fun making different potions! We used lots of different natural objects to create our potions. We begun by using different fruits, e.g. blueberries, blackberries, cherries, etc...once we had squashed and squeezed the fruit until the fruit juice came out, we then added lots of other ingredients - including blossom from the blossom tree!
Natural Easter Eggs
We had so much fun decorating our Easter egg template using natural objects! We explored our garden to see what we could find and then carefully attached it to our egg. Some of us made patterns, using things such as stick then a leaf then stick then a leaf and some of us made a pretty picture! We discussed the colours and different textures that were used to decorate our eggs.
Digging and planting!
We had so much fun digging outside and finding lots of suitable soil for the plants. We used different spades, and rakes to collect the mud. We then put the plants into new plant pots with the soil we collected. It was so much fun and we really showed how well our gross motor skills are!
Who knew making slimy mud would be so fun?! We mixed lots of water with mud, down in the garden. We used saucepans from the mud kitchen to put the water and mud in, then we used sticks to stir it all together. We worked in teams, and spent a long time taking it in turns to mix the mud and water together until it was slimy. Then, using our sticks as a writing tool we put them into the mud and then did lots of marks on the path. Some marks were phonemes we had been learning, some of us wrote numbers and some of us wrote our names! It was so much fun - but we had to do lots of hand washing afterwards!
F2 had great fun during Forest Schools, at creating and making their very own mud self-portraits. They explored in the garden and selected a variety of natural objects, and used them for the different parts of their face.
