Today in Forest School we got to explore our area for the first time. We met some of the creatures that share our space with us too. We spotted two elephant hawk moth caterpillars amongst the plants and plenty of dragonfly nymphs and a few tadpoles in the pond.
As it is the beginning of Autumn, there were also lots of fruit and berries to be seen. Within our forest school area there are pears, raspberries and a lot of apples that have recently fallen from the trees.
We made apple runs and discovered that if the apples rolled into the pond they floated but it was just as much fun to fish them out too!
During just one session we got to experience all kinds of weather. There was wind and sunshine, clouds and even some heavy rain. This made our first session extra special because we got to do some super rain dancing! Of course we finished with hot chocolate and a snack and discussed what we enjoyed.
