Rainy Days in Forest School

This half term we experienced lots of rainy afternoons! Thankfully we have our large wooden shelter to work in if it gets too wet outside.

The 2S group created some lovely Spring nature pictures using wooden prints and paint.

One chilly afternoon the 1E group were exploring the new nature area when we noticed raindrops plopping into the pond. As we headed toward the shelter the rain began to fall heavily and a storm broke out! The group excitedly watched the heavy rainfall whilst listening to the thunder. We concentrated on the sound of the raindrops on the wooden roof and noticed the ripples created when the large raindrops landed in the puddles on the playground. We then tried to replicated the sound of the storm using percussion instruments and added movement to keep ourselves warm. What a fun afternoon we had!
