FOREST SCHOOL CHALLENGES

24.04. 20 Friday’s Forest School Challenge

You may have noticed some bumble bees 🐝 flying recently.  Today’s challenge is to make little bees from Alder cones.
Step 1 – gather some little cones (alder cones work really well but if you can’t find alder cones you can use little pine cones or teasels instead).
Step 2 – cut some semi-circles from a thin plastic bag or thin white paper.
Step 3 – tie a piece of yellow wool around the middle of the circle and pull it tight to create the wings.
Step 4 – wind the wool around the cone to make the stripes. Leave a tail on the wool and use this to attach your bee to a stick to make it fly!
01.05.20 Friday’s Forest school Challenge

Try and find each of the following colours in nature: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. Collect from the ground if possible. If you have limited resources, why not collect a tiny piece of each colour and create a mini artist’s palette?

SCIENCE 

Let’s get all scientific with this easy peasy volcano experiment for the garden https://youtu.be/akMbsN4CWig

Next time you take your daily exercise take two googly eyes with you and create some funny faces! Get Googling!

WRITING

Rainbows are used as a symbol of peace and hope. They remind us that there is hope and light to follow even after dark times.

Make a rainbow sensory writing tray for a colourful, fun invitation to mark-making. Practise letter or number formation and draw pictures! So simple to create and very exciting to use as a literacy learning tool for young children.

Cut some paper to fit inside a shallow tray and colour stripes in rainbow order until all of the white is covered up, then stick it down to form the base. Simply pour a very thin layer of fine salt over the top and the tray is ready to use!

 

Stay safe
