Our Week in the Forest...
A short week and an emotional week! The children heading off to school have had their last plays in the forest this week and it is with both sadness and excitement that we say goodbye to our special friends. Keep in touch!
With just our full time children this week, it has been a chance for us to have some more intimate time together and participate in some lovely play and learning. Freddy conducted an amazing treasure hunt this week, beginning with a scavenger hunt. Different items around the forest were worth different points, including grasshoppers, mushrooms, birds and feathers. The children raced all over the forest looking for the items on their lists. Upon completion, they found a treasure map, having to navigate themselves in the right direction to find the treasure. What fun! The children enjoyed it so much they have been wanting to hunt for things all week.
An obstacle course has been a favourite this week, seeing the children lined up to have a turn. The support the children showed for one another was inspiring and with such support, we saw the children have great success in making progress and finding courage to attempt the course without assistance. The “wobbly log” also had the children belly laughing as they watched their friends wobble from side to side trying to keep their balance. Very cute!
We had a fire on Tuesday and celebrated a last week with marshmallows and chocolate. It was a very special treat and of course, the children loved it. Thank you to all the families who have brought treats in this week to share with the group, it has been a lovely way to end the term.
Wishing you all a happy and safe weekend. May next week bring us lots of new friendships and new educational journeys.
