The children in Reception have been enjoying using our woodland space to take part in different outdoor activities.
During their first session we established where it was safe to play and some basic rules such as, ‘We protect the plants and animals.’ We also played hide and seek and listened to Hoot Owl by Sean Taylor.
In the next session we made some fairy houses. Some of the children thought that they saw woodland fairies whilst exploring! They leaned sticks against trees or pushed them into the mud to make a free standing structure before adding leaves or moss for a roof.
During this week’s session we made natural crowns using different resources that we could find on the ground. The children were looking for interesting shaped and coloured leaves, sticks and seeds. Once we had attached our resources we filled the rest of the space with muddy drawings using sticks for paint brushes!
