Exciting woodland visit with Mrs Needham

What a fantastic morning we all had in the woods. The children were all brilliantly behaved as we traipsed across the fields to the woods keeping our eyes peeled for bears ! We were set the task of sheltering one of the three little pigs – our ideas of shelters varied greatly between the groups. When we’d finished our houses they were tested for wind, hurricanes, earthquakes and torrential rain ( they particularly loved this bit chanting ‘ soak it, soak it, soak it! ‘ ) they were all very successful in standing firm but only one survived the rain test and kept little piggy dry.

Well done to all the children ( and thank you parents)- I’m looking forward to moving-on morning!


” I liked all of it because it was interesting and lots of fun. I loved working as a team because we were thinking about where the sticks needed to go.” Mollie

“I enjoyed making the garden with a little path. We had a little ball of mud with flowers in it. If it floods we will turn the twigs around.” Emily
