woodand play.

I have worked with some of these learners for a number of months now and for a while we were working on their school grounds as the return to school settled. After Easter we returned to the woods and their development and style of play has changed, obviously as we have a much richer environment. Additionally, their return to tools, they had a term off for swimming, has shown a significant development as a fair number of them are now able to use the saws and other tools without any support, or interference, from an adult or myself and this has allowed further development which included the cutting of discs for a game. This arose as one child who attends has issues with transition so a game of connect four was brought to aid them. From this we started cutting discs to make a woodland version and then onto a game of noughts and crosses.
