Last week we explored our imagination by making camp fires using twigs and sticks. The children enjoyed digging up mud to make muddy pies for lunch and cooking pretend food and drink in the kitchen. We sat on the logs at the end of the session to talk about what activities we enjoyed while being in forest school.
We have been making shamrock pictures by printing with peppers to celebrate St. Patricks Day.

‘The children had great fun exploring Chinese food using their taste and smell senses. As part of our Chinese New Year celebrations we decorated the nursery with lanterns and read a story explaining the importance of them. We used chopsticks to paint pictures and explored different textures by messy play with noodles.’

“The children at Bunting celebrated Burns Day by making Scottish flags, trying Scottish shortbread and doing Highland dancing to Scottish music. The children were informed all about Robert Burns and that the 25th January was his birthday and how the Scottish people celebrate it. The children enjoyed listening to the music and participating in the dancing.”
