Eagles created imaginary communities when building shelters and designing tribal face paint using the mud. The tool bag was out this week as we make a start on our Christmas decorations.

This week we celebrated a birthday, so we sang 'happy birthday' to the birthday girl whilst she was under the parachute. It was a chilly afternoon this week and we needed warming up. We lit the Kelly Kettle for a celebratory hot chocolate and marshmallows. Yum!
Wrens enjoyed their first FS session last week. We spent some time changing into our outdoor clothes and we were very eager to explore. We first walked the boundary and spotted any hazards and then we were off to explore! We enjoyed an outdoor snack and talked about our FS rules.
As part of the FS ethos the children set their own rules and some very sensible suggestions.
Well done Wrens!
We divided into two groups this week. We began with walking the boundaries to identify any hazards. We then had time to explore. One group went to the small den and created their own tea parties. Another group used the hill and throne to imagine they were kings in their castle, and sent people to jail (the big den) for trying to blow up the king! This all developed from our prior learning about Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot.
We ended the session with some singing around the parachute.
During Wrens Forest School session we played tick-tack-toe or 'three in a row'. This was a continuation of our number work in class this week and supported our prior learning. We also enjoyed looking under logs to find worms, woodlouse and slugs!
