Kindergarten at Forest School: 28 April

Kindergarten at Forest School: 28 April

What an exciting afternoon we had at Forest School!

The children became archaeologists at Forest School this week. We looked at real animal bones then ground white chalk using a wooden mallet to make paint, to turn sticks into bones. 

Some children thought we should dig in the mud to find more bones so we got out our spades and trowels and began digging. It didn’t take them long to find them. 

A group of children then started to compare the weight of natural objects to see what was heavy and what was light. Using sticky tape attached to two trees, the children began putting objects on them to see if they were too heavy for the tape to hold, while another group made shapes and pictures using stones, sticks and leaves. 

Some comments from Kindergarten:

“Do you like Forest School? I love it!”

“I am making a magic potion so I can come to Forest School everyday”

“I want to stay at Forest School forever”
