Look what is happening in Year 1!

Year 1 had fun in the woods!

Wednesday 15th October | 15 comments

We all had a brilliant time at the Nature Reserve at Denso Marstons. Steve, the warden, was an excellent guide and knew lots of interesting things about trees. The children enjoyed collecting and sorting leaves. Steve was impressed by their knowledge as lots of children could name the leaves and trees they found. They also did some bark rubbings. The children had great fun looking for ‘Boggarts’ – ask your child to tell you what one is? Maybe you have one living in your garden!

Thank you very much to all the parents who came on the visits with us – we hope you enjoyed it too.

    Laura had a fab time today, learning lots about trees.

  2. Daniel's mum says:

    What a fantastic ‘hands-on’ experience. Daniel told us at tea time that trees have eyes, mouths and noses. He also said that you can hug them and proceeded to hug us all at the table, the same way you hug a tree! Brilliant!

  3. Isaac's Mum says:

    Isaac very much enjoyed today reporting, “Steve knows everything about trees…they have faces and need hugs”. 🙂

    Thank you for all your lovely comments. The children obviously enjoyed spending time with Steve. I think a lot of people may be hunting for ‘Boggarts’ at the weekend!!

    Elsa really enjoyed yesterday especially finding lots of different coloured leaves and sorting them into different piles.

    This trip really does seem to have been inspiring for the children. Mrs James might have unearthed a ‘gem’ in Steve – I suspect we might be going again in the future.
