We had a lovely first trip back into the woods on Monday. We could already see the signs of Autumn with leaves falling from the trees and changing colours. The children had great fun exploring this familiar space, building dens and climbing trees, but also had fun making their own Indian Head Dress from things they found on the forest floor.
We had another lovely afternoon in the woods on Monday, a slightly damper experience but the children had great fun nevertheless. There is more evidence of Autumn taking hold with many more leaves on the floor and an array of different colours. Some of the children took up the challenge to find as many different colours of leaves as possible and then had to see if they arrange the colours in the order of change from green to brown. After that they created their own pictures using different colour leaves where we had faces and trees. Other children had fun imagining they were on hammocks – unfortunately some of their hammocks could really only cope with one child at a time. All good fun though.
