Today we looked at bluebells as they are out in he woods now. Firstly, we played ‘in and out the dusty bluebells’. Then, bluebells are also called fairy flowers as many years ago people believed that they were put in the woods by fairies to trap people. We gathered materials around us on the field like daisies and small sticks to make our own fairy traps. We had a look at some actual bluebells and discussed how they looked like bells and that we shouldn’t pick them, just admire them.
Back in the forest school area, we made the traps and even a lot of our own forest school music!
