Dragonfly children are definitely finding their feet at Forest school and are loving the freedom and opportunities it brings every week. This month we have been making apple spirals to feed the birds (... and ourselves!). We have made conker watches and enjoyed punching shapes in the Autumn leaves.
It has been fabulous watching children's confidence bloom as they drag large sticks to balance on, go on their own minibeast searches and swing in the hammock. Rolling down the hill is also a favourite; thank goodness for all in one overalls!
So far the weather is onside. The warm, wet Autumn has led to lots of mushrooms around for us to look at ... but not touch! But watch this space; winter is on its way and with it, more change to the forest floor. Take a look at our latest fun in Forest School!
This month is all about getting Dragonfly children used to the freedom and opportunities offered by Forest School, in a safe yet exciting way. They are greatly enjoying looking for insects, making dens and we've even had some 'magic potions' being made! We're hoping we're not too late in the season to find some dragonflies flying around. We'll keep looking!
We'll add photos as the weeks go on.
