IT might not look like it (!) BUT there is always a plan. ย THIS block has been about welcoming in new and old faces, encouraging independence within the site, looking at THE site: animals, ground, fungi and leaves and hopefully just having FUN!

THANK you for coming – please scroll down for new session dates ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒฟ


Balsa Boats

WE braved the weather today and were really lucky … we had the chance to check our reptile mats – the largest thing we found was a snail, make balsa boats using mini hack saws and knives, seeing which boats worked and investigating the stream before having a fire and soup. ย A beautiful morning ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒฟ.

ALL session dates for the next term will be confirmed shortly. ย THIS THURSDAY is the last Nature Noodles of the block and this FRIDAY is WOODLAND RHYMETIME. ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ

LOOKING forward to lots of Autumnal adventures in the next block ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ


Wind Speeds

Unfortunately due to high gusts and wind speeds forecast this afternoon Woodland Rhymetime is not running.

Katie and I apologise for any inconvenience caused but safety is more important and itโ€™s absolutely not worth the risk.

Hopefully Woodland Rhymetime will run as planned next Friday 19th October. ๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿƒ

Tin Can Fires to Tools

Another sunny session with some Go Find It exploring and collecting, our first story in the storytelling chair read by Ollie, some hammers, hand drills and peelers with some of the older children preferring to try a sheath knife. ย We had some natural art and some of the plaques attached to our sign finishing off with some fire steel practice with tin can fires.

There is WOODLAND RHYMETIME tomorrow 1.30-2.15pm, Outdoor Learning Session on Monday 10-1pm, the last Thursday of the Noodles block on the 18th and finishing off the term with another WONDERFUL Woodland Rhymetime on the 19th. ย ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒฟ0846477D-ABF7-4691-B8C7-06A2AB9FC163.jpeg

Monday Session

A BEAUTIFUL AUTUMN day for our Monday session today – we were out for nearly 4 HOURS enjoying the sunshine, exploring the meadow, looking at maps, using compasses, splashing around in the stream, making our own tracks, putting down reptile mats AND just playing. ย The bread on the stick worked too for just about the first time!

The NEXT Monday session is 15th October – where we can use some tools to make boats, explore the stream and make some dens. ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒฟ

Bat Business ๐Ÿฆ‡

Friday evening we enjoyed a bat walk led by Sustrans David. ย There was a great turn out – lots of different ages and it was lovely to see you all! ย It was too cold for the bats BUT we had a great time using the bat monitors, hearing lots of bat facts from David and enjoying a walk under the stars.

Many thanks to Sustrans ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿฆ‡๐Ÿ˜Š.
