Look what is happening in Year 1!

Leaves, trees, fresh air, exploring and best of all BOGGARTS!

Thursday 15th October | 6 comments

1S all had a brilliant time at the Nature Reserve at Denso Marstons.

Steve, the warden, was an excellent guide and knew lots of interesting facts about trees. First we went exploring and looking for leaves.  The children enjoyed collecting and sorting leaves and Steve was impressed by their knowledge as lots of children could name the leaves and trees they found. Next we went on a berry hunt and found lots of different types including elderberries, rosehips and even a few juicy blackberries. Then it was time for lunch and the children were very excited about their packed lunches! Finally, the children had great fun creating and 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 visit with us – we hope you enjoyed it too. We really appreciate your help!
