On Friday the sun will be shining again, so we will be exploring the long grass meadow to net bugs and flying insects, identifying some then making our own out of natural materials. Of course there will be time to practise some bug skills of our own so the tree swings, climbing ropes, spider web and slack lines will be out again in our secret forest. There will be plenty of time to chill out with homemade flapjack and drinks, Imaginative stories, mud kitchen and games too. If you have a net (cheap fishing nets are ideal) then bring it along!!
Knowledge of the world, visual identification skills, physical and gross and fine motor skills, cooperation and imagination will all be covered in your child's development this week -plus a whole heap of other things that they will come up with. And they will be so chilled out after a morning in the woods.
Remember the sunscreen and hats this week, and long sleeves, trousers and closed toe footwear to be comfortable in the woods.
Can't wait to see you all again!
