On Friday afternoons Thomas and Jasmine go to Forest School, run by Tree House Learning. They have been going since September last year and they love it! Today’s session was special for 2 reasons; Firstly because Gordon went with them, and secondly they got to use tools for the first time! And when I say tools, I mean real, full sized tools! They used a bow saw and cut logs, 2 children at a time; one to push and one to pull (although Thomas chose Gordon as his partner!)
When Jasmine wasn’t using the saw, she collected logs from around “Base Camp”, set them up around a tree and made some music!
Whilst the big ones were out, Ben and I did some water play. I got the gravel tray out and filled it with water and Octonauts! After a bit of play I added some bubbles in as well and he had great fun with this! He managed to blow bubbles himself for the first time today 🙂
We had a good Friday afternoon 🙂
