The bog baby, bow saws and REAL babies at our mighty Friday Foxes this morning 🦊 … craft & tool possibilities. MY favourite moment was seeing all the children hard at work with their tools on the branch from the wind damaged tree 😊🌿🍃🌿.
MONDAY is Outdoor Learning Monday and Iam feeling festive with woodwork & wreath possibilities. PLEASE keep an eye on the weather.
An AWESOME day learning to hedge lay the traditional way … the next workday is Monday 28th January 2019, please message me with any queries.
Many thanks to Sustrans for leading the training.
A wonderful Tree Charter session, thank you for coming and making our morning so BEAUTIFUL with some singing, wreath making, clay faces AND leaf waxing.

AND the sky is grey, WE went on a walk on a WINTERS day …” finding ALL the GREEN that we could find, then mud playing & making, hot chocolate drinking, marshmallow roasting and some leaf waxing … 🌿🍃🌿
THE first cooler session for a while, too cold for some tiny toes BUT we had fun making story sticks, playing hide & seek, making a BIG spiders web, mud pie making and muddy mark making and waxing some leaves 🍁. PLEASE remember that there is NO Thursday session next week (I will put up details of the workday later).
TOMORROW is the FRIDAY FOXES and THEN Woodland Rhymetime and THEN Saturday is Tree Charter Day 🍁🌿🍁. FOR any queries please message me.
HOPE everyone had fun this morning, I felt it was a lovely relaxed session with the children dipping in and out of activities as they wanted – it was lovely to see so much independence in making activity choices and in play, using more and more of the site. SOME tried their hand at tool work, den building, fire making and relaxing in hammocks.
THE next Monday session is 3rd December. Choices made by the children are wreath making, wood work & tools, more fire & food … and anything else that we can come up with 😊🌿🍃🌿
THERE are still a couple of spaces on the small & mighty FRIDAY FOXES session … TODAY we explored sensory play with colours, herbs, pumpkin & beetroot. MADE marks using our paint, WONDERED at the magic in the bare brown tree, tried our hand with hacksaws & palm drills and looked for our dragonfly in the sky 😊❤️🌿🍃🌿
SUCH a relaxing session with a spot of tree bathing thrown in for me.
IF you have any queries about this session or any other please send me a message.
