Mad about Mushrooms!

Class: Garden Room Year: 2018 - 19

In Forest School, something amazing has happened! The children discovered an enormous mass of toadstools! They were so fascinated and went hunting for more mushrooms in and around the forest, finding lots of different types! We talked about how they look and smell, and how to keep safe around them by not touching or eating them. Back in nursery, Harvey shared the exciting news! We brought some of the mushrooms into the classroom so we could have a closer look with magnifying glasses, and started doing some observational drawings of them. We also used the Ipads to find out more about the mushrooms, such as where they come from! It is so magical!
