Forest School Exploration and 'Leaf Man'

We've been thinking all about Autumn and this morning we introduced the children to a book which we've used at Forest School sessions before - 'Leaf Man'.  This beautiful book tells the story of Leaf Man as he blows away in the wind and on his travels he passes over various things, all made out of real leaves.  The children were captivated by his journey and enjoyed picking out the creatures on each page such as chickens, geese, mice, cows and squirrels.  At circle time, Jodie made a Leaf Man, inviting the children to add what features he needed, including eyes, nose, mouth and eyebrows.  We then decided we could explore the Forest School area, looking for Leaf Man and making our own.


There was lots to investigate and we had fun practising our climbing and balancing skills on the logs, playing inside the tee-pee, using the natural instruments and the 'forest phone'.  We hunted through the leaves with our hands and sticks, commenting on the colours, shapes and sizes.
