Autumnal Adventures at Forest School

After being rained off for our first visit to Glapton Woods this term, we made the most of our next two visits.

One visit focused on finding sticks of different types and using mathematical and scientific language to describe them – these are the words that were used, “spiky, small, long, chunky, bumpy, smooth, rough, bendy, straight and leafy”.

The next visit focused on learning about what animals live in the woods – the children found out that squirrels live in dreys, foxes in dens, rabbits in warrens, badgers in setts, hedgehogs in nests and owls in nests, but this time up in a tree. They, then, worked in group to make some homes for animals ensuring they had food, shelter and lovely, soft beds.
