Arriving in the woods today we discussed the things that we like to do at home in the autumn season. These included drawing, playing with our toys indoors and snuggling up on the sofa.
We learnt that the bugs and mini beasts like to be sheltered too. Elder was used to create bug homes, once it was cut with the saw and hollowed out with a tent peg.
Planting was also popular among the children. They dug holes in secluded places and planted ‘Goat Willow’, ‘Forget Me Nots’, ‘Dock Leaves’ and ‘Buttercups’.
The children of Hazel Class still managed to find time to have fun with their friends by swinging and pushing each other in the hammocks, taking turns on the rope swing, taking photographs of each other and hunting for mini beasts.
Needless to say, we have had a very busy afternoon, followed by a well deserved biscuit.
