Year 1 had a fabulous trip to Covert woods.
We listened to the birds and noises around us - life can be so busy and it is very calming to stop and take in the surroundings.
The children found interesting natural items on the forest floor and talked to their friends about the features. They blindfolded each other, led them to trees and had to use their senses to feel the trees and later on find it. Trust was needed!
We read the story 'Where the wild things are' and used the woodland treasures to build beds, footprints and dens for the wild things.
It was brilliant to see how they enjoyed engaging with the natural world.
