Forest school magic 16/3/8...We had a story by the fire.It was about a little boy who wanted to persuade his sister that their were fairies at the bottom of their garden.It made us want to make our own magic so first of all we made magic circles on the ground with our hands.The grown ups sprinkled us with fairy dust to make the magic work!Next we hunted for a magic wand of our own and returned with it to the magic circle to ‘charge’ up the magic! Some of our wands even started to wiggle when they were held over the magic hand circles and our bodies too!
After our hot chocolate and biscuits around the fire we went inside to decorate our wands.In the afternoon we put our wands to the test and made magic (or Science! As some of the children told me).We used vinegar and bicarb to make explosions, and milk,food colouring and washing up liquid to make swirly,shooting colours.
We have been learning to identify and remember number bonds to 10.(2 numbers when added that make 10).We have little rhymes to help us recall the different ways of making 10...
9+1 ballooning fun.
2+8 love to skate.
7+3 love to bungee.
4+6 yo yo tricks.
5+5 gymnastics jive!
The children realise that numberbonds can also be reversed eg 8+2=10, 2+8=10
We like to use numicon to help us work out and remember ALL of the numberbonds to 10.
Shared area and outdoor activities.
We have been learning about the days of the week and the months of the year!
Spring has finally come!
