Forest School - The Three Little Pigs
We love fairytales and having read the Three Little Pigs this week we thought we would see if we could build some houses in the woods to keep the pigs safe from the bug bad wolf. The children were very inventive, even including traps for the wolf just in case he tried to get in!
Eating those yummy gingerbread men!
The Gingerbread Man
The children have really enjoyed the Gingerbread Man story this week. They have been making their own gingerbread men and women (!) with the gingerbread play dough which has been strengthening their handws and fingers, writing speech bubbles and role-playing the story.
It seemed the perfect opportunity for some baking and we made some gingerbread men to take for snack at Forest School. The children talked about the melting butter and dissolving sugar and made some delicious gingerbread men.
It was great to be back in the woods again today. Our last visit was before Christmas so there were lots of changes to look out for. The children noticed how much barer the woods looked but they were also very excited to notice lots and lots of daffodil shoots and even some buds!
We continued with our Gruffalo theme today. After using the puppets to tell the story, we started creating our own 'Forest School Gruffalo Artwork'. Although there were no paints or felt tips in the woods, the children were very creative with the natural resources to create their own pictures of the characters.
