The fairies came to Forest School this week. Lots of tiny houses and gardens popped up all over New Wood.
Some children chose to make furniture for their tiny homes. They worked together using a Bow Saw, a Laplander, a Mora knife and a Mallet. They were rightfully very proud of their work.
The children also made Bee Hotels from terracotta pots and dried grasses, for the many bees that are waking up and looking for new nests, as well as making wild flower seed bombs to launch next week onto the river bank.
Elsewhere they studied the tadpoles in our new mini pond, made things from clay, built dens, painted with natural paint, used binoculars to bird watch and rolled down muddy hills!
And best of all we were able to get back behind the Rainbow Fence for a little bit, to begin putting it back together. The children helped to start to shift the huge pile of wood chips and to re-site the fire circle.
