Foundation Stage - Woodpecker

Thursday 19th November 2015

We have been very busy squirrels in Foundation Stage!

This week we had a fantastic time at forest school. Our first task was to work together to build a forest den for one of our teddy bears. We are a great team and we built a super den!

We also tried some exciting art activities. We created clay animals, made some beautiful leaf decorations AND we made our own paintbrushes using sticks and leaves. Everyone is looking forward to using clay again.

The weather turned very cloudy and windy so we grabbed our torches and set off on a nature trail! Some of the girls thought they found a mouse hole, they used their torches to look into the hole but no-one was home! We stomped back to camp for some hot soup to warm us up.

The boys won our leaf collecting challenge with 70 leaves! The girls showed great sporting spirit and joined in with the boys’ celebration. We let the leaves go into the wind and all got the fits of giggles! 

At the end of the day we enjoyed our favourite story ‘The Gruffalo’ whilst we slurped hot chocolate and gobbled up marshmallows. It was so cosy.
