Today’s trip to Ecclesall Woods

We certainly did launch our new topic of to a good start today –  ‘What lies in the deep, dark woods?’  We visited the woods and took part in a great workshop based on the story ‘We are going on a bear hunt.’ The children listened carefully to the story and then went on their very own  bear hunt through the woods. After a very muddy journey, we found the bear in a cave and named her Katie! We then talked about the different animals in the woods and what they need to survive. We counted some worms and made some dens for the different animals.

We would just like to say how amazing the children were today, not only did they walk all the way to the woods, they also got very wet. They were so sensible and they just got on happily with the activities so well. We were so proud of them! We would also like to thank our parents who helped, we didn’t have the best conditions!  You were really great and helped lots with the children. We hope the wellies and waterproofs haven’t come back too muddy, thank you again for your support and cooperation. Here are a few pictures of the day, I’m sure the children are tired tonight!
