Forest School - Week two

We had a great time at Forest School today! We learnt about the boundaries of Forest School and each had to find a red ribbon, then played a game called ‘come on in!’ This helped us to learn about the boundaries and where we could safely go. We also had loads of fun playing in the mud; mixing it, jumping in it and painting with it! Abbie taught us how to use a manual drill and we drilled holes in bits of wood! We took turns using the hammock, which was really cool. At the end of the session we passed round ‘foxy’ the talking stick and talked about what we enjoyed, learnt and what we want to do next week. We decided we’d like to make necklaces using the drill next week, so if anyone collects any conkers over the week, please bring them in :) When we left the forest, we all collected something to give to the ‘Grandmother’ tree. We can’t wait for next week!

Grandparents Stay & Play 7th October 2019


At Woodland Corner we value the role of the Grandparents.  You fill an irreplaceable role in your grandchild's development: Pillars of wisdom and sources of support, you possess a unique understanding of your family’s history and traditions. You love your grandchild with unconditional affection that matches that of a child’s own parents, and though some families are separated by distance or circumstance, being able to connect with a grandchild frequently fosters a relationship that can influence a child to define values, flourish in self-confidence and strengthen the bonds of family. 

Thank you for coming in yesterday, we all loved having you!

Harvest and planting

Today we brought in vegetables and fruit we had grown at home.  We had a celebration with our Parents/Carers.  We sang them Harvest songs and acted out the Gigantic Turnip.

We planted spring bulbs under the grown and we planted Winter Pansies on top of the soil.
