Sports Day and a more Wild Wednesdays

The children were resilient and brave as they took part in their first Sports Day. They had so much fun too!

We have been enjoying being outside all day on our Wild Wednesdays. The children have been looking closely at the world around them from the clouds to little minibeasts.

We even found some ladybird cocoons.

Some children made fairy wings, dinosaur worlds and dens.

Some children placed petals and leaves under cloth and then they used a mallet to tap on top until beautiful colours and shapes appeared.

Wild Wednesday at Knettishall Heath

We had a Wild Wednesday at Knettishall Heath.

We used our senses to meet a tree! We looked at it, touched it and felt it. We even gave our trees names. 

One tree looked like it was bleeding.

Another  tree had a fairy pool and a fairy house.

Another tree had fungi growing on it that looked like a bee hive.

We searched for minibeasts. We found lots of ants, millipedes, worms, snails and beetles. We found a cucumber spider, a shield bug and an enormous toad!

After that we made our own creatures and little dens for them to live in.

Then we made dens for ourselves.

We had a lovely picnic and an exciting journey on the coach home.

Our First 'Wild Wednesday'!

We spent the whole day outside today. We made dens, potions, dug in the mud, made obstacle courses and played bowling. We even had a go at using a saw to cut some hazel slices.
