Welcome back to Forest School - autumn 2021
This week we have all been getting sticky! Children in KS1 listened to the Stickman and then were inspired to make stickpeople and think about how to care for them.We also found a newt under a log. After having a good look, we carefully put it back.
In KS2 children practised their knots and lashings in order to make rectangles and triangles. They got very creative after that and watch this space because Frankenstick and his famiy are taking up residence in thte Forest School!
Have a look at children in KS1 and early years talking about the cafe they made for Remus. They have really thought about what he needs to keep him happy and healthy.
Having reached a healthy weight, Justine, from Fuzzy Pegs Fostering brought Remus back to our Forest school and settled him into a shelter. Later that evening we opened the door and left Remus to explore. We haven't seen him since - which is a good sign. But we are keeping a close look out for evidence of him - yes- we have all turned into hedgehog poo detectives!
Charlotte and Justine Whitaker from Fuzzy Peg Fostering brought Remus to visit the children in Forest School. The children learnt how to care for poorly hedgehogs and how important it is to look after these special animals, as sadly their numbers are in decline. Luckily for Remus, he is making great progress and as soon as he has put enough weight on, he will be released back into the wild.
To our delight, we have found evidence of hedgehog activity in our Forest school - a lovely fresh hedgehog poo!
