Picture frames, poppies, posing and....er...fishees on dishees.
The children love arriving to see whether their stools have been used as dining tables by the woodland creatures during the passing week! Having discussed our values I set a whole group challenge to make the sneezy dragon some artwork for his woodland home. The children could choose whether they wanted to work alone, in pairs or in a group to create something out of the natural resources - it was fascinating watching the children (and adults) settle in their individual ways to the task. Take a look at their art gallery in this week's gallery.
Foxglove had made a rabbit in a field of poppies to acknowledge Remembrance Sunday. Click here to link to the 2 minute animation. The group then learnt some special knots so that they could create their own remembrance crosses - I was so impressed with the way children dealt with the challenge and many are keen to perfect their skills next week. The children then held their crosses during a minute's silence. Many were keen to share their reflections and then I left them with the thought that the oak tree next to our fire circle had been there one hundred years ago during the Great War and that if they ever felt like taking time out...then sitting under a tree was a good place to start. x
