Forest School

My name is Georgie and I am a dancer. Today we are having a fun filled forest school day, learning about nature! We are going to be exploring our local area and collecting natural objects. We will be learning about plants and the names associated with the different parts of a plant. There will be lots of creative activities too.

9.30am Activity:
Nature Face

In this activity we will be going on a woodland walk (or walk in your local green area) to collect some materials for our day’s activities.

Grown Ups:

Together with your child, explore your garden or local area. Take a bag and see what you can find. You could collect sticks, twigs, leaves, flowers and other natural items. This activity supports children's knowledge and understanding of the world around them.

You may want to wear gloves while you collect the objects.

10.30am Activity:
Nature Crown

In this activity we will be making a nature crown. 

Grown Ups:

You will need a thick piece of card, some sticky tape and natural items to make your crown. This activity develops children's creativity and communication and language skills.

1:30pm Activity:
Counting Game

In this activity we are going to be counting sticks.

Grown Ups:

You will need some card to make flash cards for the numbers 1-10, and 10 sticks to help with our counting! This activity supports counting, number recognition and place value.

2:30pm Activity:
Label a Plant

In this activity we will be learning about the different parts of a plant.

Grown Ups:

You need to find a plant or flower you can examine so that we can draw a lovely picture and label all of the different parts! This activity develops children's knowledge and understanding of plants and flowers.

If you've finished these and still have time for fun...

Today's extension task is to plant your own seeds in preparation for the spring/summer time! You can also read a poem about the forest.

Story time:
The Cat and the Hens

Join Jude, Lamby and Flossie for this lovely bed time t ale.
