Week 4

This week, we revisited the story of Pelle's New Suit (our story gifted by the root children). Pelle uses the lambs wool to make himself a new suit to fit his growing body. We kicked the week off by weaving some wool of our own, developing our fine motor skills - tricky stuff. We also looked at our own bodies and how we have all grown this year - we decided to chalk around them on the wall and compare heights. On Wednesday we crushed strawberries and blueberries to create some natural dyes. We used the dye to stain material which we then made into summer bunting. As always, our week has also entailed lots of free, forest school play, including muddy hand printing, kite making, shields and water play.
