Every week in Early Years, the children set off to explore their surroundings; the apple garden, the woods, top lawn. This week, Reception went searching for sticks in the wooded area and the aim was to find the perfect stick to make a magic wand. We tried to make sure they weren’t too long or too short and that they would be suitable for creating magic powers.
Before the obligatory glitter and paint (and in some cases sand) decoration, the children were shown how to peel the bark off their stick with a peeler. They all worked really carefully and sensibly to use the peelers and were interested to see what the wood was like underneath. Now to make some magic!Previous
