Year One Trip to Lea Wood

On Tuesday, the Year One class had a wonderful trip to Lea Wood on the Filkins Estate for a fantastic day outdoors in amongst the bluebells.  We went on a walk hunting for woodland creatures and had to make it through the Troll Trap safely.

We learnt about many different woodland animals on the way as well as collecting the ingredients for a magic potion.  (Troll juice, goblin snot and pixie dust combine for truly magical effect!)  Our day was topped off by toasting marshmallows on the campfire.

Thank you to The Ernest Cook Trust who provide this incredible outdoor learning experience in such a beautiful setting.

Mobile Planetarium Visit

Year 1 have been studying space as part of their topic this term, ‘Moon Zoom’. And surely, (except for a St. Mary’s rocket trip!) there could be no better way of experiencing the galaxy than by journeying into the sky and seeing the stars close up which we did with a visit to a mobile planetarium.
