Could you go on a bear hunt through the different environments?

Can you make a den for the deep dark cave, inside or outside.

Week 4


This week's Forest School story is 'Freddie and the Fairy' by Julia Donaldson.

Could you make a magic fairy wand?


Week 5


This week's forest school home learning is based on the story 'Owl Babies' by Martin Waddell.


Can you make a bird feeder at home from an old milk carton, a pine cone, or a yogurt pot? Fill it with lard, cheese, bird seed and a few raisins. The bird will thank you in the very cold weather when they can't get their beaks into the ground to find worms!
