Forest School sessions in Reception are well underway and are proving to be hugely popular! We spent our first session exploring the Forest School area and learning the Forest School rules. After that we went hunting for natural treasures such as interesting sticks, shiny rocks and leaves with strange colours or patterns on them. Then we played snap with our treasure and found somebody with similar treasure to ours. Finally, we sat around base camp to eat our biscuits and discuss the interesting things we had observed in our session.
In our latest session, we read the story 'Stick Man' by Julia Donaldson. Then we went on a hunt for sticks to make the perfect body, arms and legs for a stick man and searched for leaves for his head. After we had made our stick men in groups, we had a look at other children's stick men and discussed what we liked about them. We enjoyed our biscuits whilst discussing our favourite part of the Stick Man story.'
