Today all members of Maple Class walked a mile. We started off wearing coats but quickly warmed up! We are looking forward to beating our time tomorrow.
This week we created our own shelters. First, we practised tying knots. Then, we chose trees to attach our tarpaulin to. Next, we investigated the patterns on different bark and leaves using wax crayons. Our woodland artwork.
In our second Forest School session we continued our minibeast hunt. We used a pot to collect the creatures and then we looked at them through a magnifying glass. A millipede. Another giant worm. We then decided to build a minibeast hotel. We tried lots of different places but decided to build it under a … Continue reading

What a fantastic trip! Year 2 had a brilliant time exploring the mini beasts in the magical mini beast hunt. We identified many different types of insects, for example larva ladybird, earthworm, slugs, beetles and many more. We then had the opportunity to explore the pond during our pond dipping experience. We found some insects … Continue reading
