Forest School Links and Activities

Our lovely Forest School Teacher Sarah Allington has been busy putting some activities together for everyone. See below lots of outside activities that you can do in your garden or on your daily walk!  Also, follow the link below for some great resources and visuals for nature activities for during self-isolation.

This short video explains the differences between moths and butterflies and what to look for so you can tell the difference - fascinating!

This is a lovely idea for decorating pinecones, if you don't have pompoms scrunched up coloured tissue paper or paper would look great too.

Go on a search for summer flowers, it could be in your garden, the school field or even on a family walk, see how many you can find.

Here is an activity to try, this sheet shows you how to make a twig raft, test it to see if it floats, maybe in a stream or pond (with your grown-ups) or even in the sink or bath!

 

 

 

Some ideas here for art ideas outside, natural paintbrushes are great!
