This week saw the children embark on their first school trip to Perlethorpe Environmental Education Centre. We had fantastic weather and all of the activities took place in the woods close to the centre. The classes took turns to work with Kieth who reenacted the stories of The 3 Little Pigs complete with their houses as well as The 3 Billy Goats Gruff. They even spotted Cinderella in her Castle! We also went to a different part of the wood to take part in some sensory activities such as a blindfold trail, making smelly potions and homes for different woodland animals.
It was a fantastic experience for the children and their behaviour and enthusiasm was outstanding. We would also like to pass on a huge thank you to our parent helpers, without whom we wouldn’t have been able to run the trip.
Back at school the children have started some fantastic writing about their experience which we can’t wait to share with you. Most of the children chose to work outside this week in the sunny weather. We had some Year 6s who came and helped the children to build a slide, who then experimented with lots of different ways of getting down it.
We opened the mud kitchen for the first time this year and had some great recipes cooked up! There was also some good problem solving and investigating using the water channels. Let’s hope the sunshine lasts!
