Wild Things Week Two ~ scampering squirrels

Weather: drizzle, gusts of wind
Date: 11th November ~ a few leaves on trees, but mainly bare branches
Activity: Scampering squirrels

Week two a very blustery day! One child forgot their wellies, but as we were going out on to the field and it wasn't too wet, it was OK for him to wear his shoes.

We used the schools mirrors, usually used for symmetry, science and maths, and put them under our noses to take a closer look at the treetops. We pretended to be squirrels and walked around the tall beech trees in a line scampering from tree to tree, stopping only to find beech nuts on the ground.

*Wild Things is part of a series of blog posts documenting my involvement in outdoor education activities with the reception class of my son's school. The aim is to encourage children to discover the natural world through simple activities and play. I hope by sharing these activities here on my blog, others may be inspired to try some of the activities at home or even, like me, approach their local school to help out.
