We have most definitely out done ourselves this week in the Fulham forest. Using the large wooden pallets, we created a very large throne which inspired us to turn ourselves into kings and queens. This was also a nice way to say goodbye to the wonderful Karlenne who celebrated her last day with us here in the Fulham forest on Tuesday.  This week we have really been focusing on literacy and thinking about different ways to develop our children’s learning through our enjoyment of literacy activities.  On camp we have had all sorts of activities including creating a library with great ..read more

Morden - Ducklings!

This week has been one of the most anticipated so far this year as we had the arrival of our five duckling eggs on Monday. Our explorers were very excited and eager to see them. Some were a bit confused as to why they were in an incubator and had some questions like 'why haven’t they hatched yet?' or 'what are they inside?' which gave us the opportunity to talk and explain what the incubator does to help the ducklings grow. The entire experience from the duck eggs arriving to watching small chips and cracks appearing on the eggs was very exciting for everyone. By Wednesday morning, one of the ..read more

We’ve danced through a symphony of weather this week—from gusty winds and gentle rains to bursts of sunshine and even a sprinkle of hail. Yet, through it all, the resilient wildflowers have painted our forest with vibrant colours and life. Wildflower Wonders  Our adventurous little explorers have been busy trekking through the Heath, spotting and identifying the seasonal blooms that adorn our forest. The children have discovered bluebells, snowdrops, forget-me-nots, dandelions, and daisies, creating a tapestry of colour that is a feast for the eyes. Accompanied by picnic snacks, we’ve sa ..read more

We’re so happy to be back for the new term and pleased to see our sessional friends return to the forest and we feel excited to move back to our Parakeets area. Our beloved plane tree is looking leafy and green, and we are enjoying watching the mummy and daddy birds collect twigs and leaves to make their nests. This week we are exploring patterns in nature. We observed snails and the whirls on their shells. We counted the spots on ladybirds and noticed the texture of stones and the veins on leaves. We felt inspired to make our own colourful patterns! We drew a whirl like a snail’s shell and u ..read more

This week we had what seemed like the fifteenth episode of Twister! As the high winds on Monday threw us yet another curveball and forced us indoors once again.  We enjoyed some nice safe play in our fantastic indoor nursery space, clay creations were once again very popular and built upon from last week’s activity. Some of our little sculptors decided clay people would be the theme of this week’s clay play, and so that’s what we made - some of the clay people even had posh fancy hats!  We were relieved to be able to get back into the forest on Tuesday, as we enjoyed a bright but s ..read more

This week has been an array of weathers! We started the week with a day at the scout hut due to high winds where we explored the park and relished the opportunity to take the kite out! The children enjoyed seeing it fly high in the sky before the wind stopped for a few moments and the kite fell! On Tuesday, we were greeted with hail, rain and all sorts of different weathers! Our Little Forest Folk-ers enjoyed looking for different creatures as well as different signs of nature that indicated spring is on its way! We found worms and flowers on the meadow. Our little explorers then gathered bin ..read more

Spring fully arrived at Chiswick House and Gardens this week, and what a joy to have our second week of holiday camp with this sweet weather and with nature at its best!

We have enjoyed our final week having the best time with our holiday campers! The children absolutely loved celebrating unicorn day - we created an amazing model unicorn in camp which the little ones were able to climb and practice their balance on.  Some great target-practice games have had the children practising their throwing abilities, challenging our little adventurers with different sized holes to throw the beanbags through. This was also a great way to incorporate numbers into our play, as different amounts of points were rewarded for different sized hoops.  Some tool work ..read more

This has been our last week of Easter holiday camps in our Morden forest, and we’ve made the most with the company of the adventurous Little Forest Folk who have joined us! One of the main activities we’ve had this week has been ‘searching for the dinosaur egg! Our fabulous educator Charlotte created a map of our forest space for the children to follow to find the mysterious lost eggs. Once we found them, the interaction changed into a fabulous sensory activity where the children found the small dinos inside the shredded paper beds. We had so much fun finding them!  Later in the day, we ..read more
