Happy National Storytelling Week!! It’s been a lovely week with many sunny, warm days. Our little explorers have been enjoying many activities inspired by their favourite books.  On Monday, they made the animals from The Gruffalo using different kinds of shapes, such as squares, triangles, ovals and circles. Children chose which animals they’d like to make and figured out which shapes they needed to make them. Many of them showed their maths knowledge to describe each shape as well as to count the number of shapes they combined to make their animals! Some children were very creative and ..read more

This week in our Fulham Forest has been great! We started off the week working on and developing our fine motor skills. The children used twine and coloured beads to create necklaces and bracelets by threading the beads onto the twine, creating so many different and colourful patterns.  As this week is National Storytelling Week, our camp and activities have reflected this. The children have really enjoyed some role play activities, such as a pirate ship and even a theatre to create our own little shows using our dressing up costumes. Using lollipop sticks in the creative area we attem ..read more

Good Afternoon everyone!   It’s been a sunnier and drier week in the forest! We have taken advantage of all of the forest’s physical activities! The swing, climbing frame and slack line have been used as often as ever! ‘I’m so tall!’ ‘Watch me bounce!’ We have introduced the ‘spiderweb’ which the adventurers have ducked under, crawled through and used in part of their imaginary play! ‘I’m a baby spider and I’m catching flies in my web!’ ‘Get in the web!’ ‘Stuck in here!’  Fire circles and cooking have been popular with all adventurers becoming more and more familiar with the fire s ..read more

What a truly magnificent week we have had here at Putney Heath. We have had some fantastic activities that the children have been eager to engage in.  The main highlight of our week has to be our fishing fun, where the children had the opportunity to create their own fishing rods ready for the long sail ahead. At the beginning of the week, we created some cardboard fish and the children had the challenge to catch as many fish as they could to sell at the fish market once they had sailed back to shore. Once all the fish had been caught, the children sold their fish for different prices at ..read more

Hello everyone, Despite world book day being a month away, this week has been all about stories. Each day our outdoor activities have related to a particular favourite of the forest. On Monday we started the week off with ‘The Three Little Pigs’, a perfect one for us as we have plenty of sticks to build a house with! Some of the children became pigs themselves, creating snouts out of egg cartons, paint and string. On the mark-making table we got messy using toy bricks as stamps, covering the paper with lots of colourful shapes (and plenty of hand prints). Miranda had some excellent assistants ..read more

The week began with children discovering a brand-new tyre mountain created by Sam and Luca. At a height of 3 tyres and in a pyramid formation that spans a few meters across, there is plenty of room for all to enjoy practising their climbing skills, developing core strength and balance. Topped by a flagpole and surrounded by a dug-out moat, the castle feel has also sparked new imaginative adventures. We plan to be making flags soon and the children will no doubt be adding to the creation over time, as they please.  In the forest, Dan has been developing netted tunnel obstacles which are s ..read more

With the warmer weather we have been able to explore more sat down craft activities. This week we have had big success with purple play dough! It was a great texture to squish in our fingers and mould into lots of different shapes. The children also used cookie cutters to print patterns in their playdough and used natural ingredients such as sticks and leaves to decorate. What an excellent way to bring the natural world around us in to play.  We have had a continuation of our trips out this week and more children headed to the farm and natural history museum. It has been such an adventur ..read more

It has been a very cold week this week, but we kept ourselves nice and warm with hot milk and being very active; dancing, running and a lot of adventure walks in the forest! One morning, children decided to go to the pond as they wanted to check if it was still frozen or not. Some of them have been showing their growing leadership skills and great geography knowledge of the park, leading the way, and helping the educators with the headcount. When we got there, we found out the pond was still FROZEN!! Children found sticks and knelt down to touch the ice plates with them. We also saw them help ..read more

What a good week it’s been in the Fulham Forest this week. We started off the week really thinking about germs! Especially germs on our teeth. The children found great fun in the activity prepared for them to learn more about germs and why it is important to brush our teeth. Using laminated sheets of ‘teeth’ the children were able to visually see drawn germs and, using toothbrushes and foam to represent toothpaste, the children practised removing all the germs from the teeth to make them all clean.  Having Joe in the forest with us this week has inspired the children to become musical wi ..read more
