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.
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.
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.
In this activity we will be making a nature crown.
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.
In this activity we are going to be counting sticks.
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.
Label a Plant
In this activity we will be learning about the different parts of a plant.
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.
