Mud painting

This week we went out into the woodland looking for shades and colors to make into paint. With the paint and our creative stick paint brushes we painted differ patterns and shapes to then create a picture…

 

Next week we we are looking forward to mKIng frames for the paintings to go in…imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimage

We are worm explorers !

 

Woody lost his worms so we went exploring for them to help him! Some of his worms were harder to find than others! We learnt that this depended on the colour of his worm..

Greens and darker colours were difficult as they blended in with our woodland environment! The brighter colours of pinks and purples stood out more for us!

Look at how much fun we had finding the worms hidden in the woodland…

We went digging for our own worms… Look how we got on!

We then decided to make the worms a better habitat… we learnt that their habitat needed shelter, food and water…

We went on a hunt for these important things!

What would you like to ask Woody? If you have a question for Woody post it on the blog and I am sure he will get back to you!

What a fun first day out! It was pretty chilly today so please remember more warm clothes for next week and wellies or thick sturdy boots!

I wonder what Woody will have in store for us next week!

 

See you soon!

The trust game…

Blindfolded in the forest area… We had to communicate confidently with our partners as we took them on a journey around the forest … We built trust between us all to become greater teams!
