We launched our new topic with a rather soggy visit to Brokerswood on Friday. We may have been soaked through but we definitely did not let it spoil our fun! The children were amazingly behaved and threw themselves into den building and leaf finding as we stomped through the woods.
The children worked in teams to make their dens. They were very good at adding decorations of leaves and logs. Of course there was an added bonus of a dry place to stand when the shelters were finished!
We had a fabulous picnic lunch in the barn. It was lovely eating all together.
After lunch we had a quick play on the equipment. The children were very good at balancing and taking turns.
Then we braved the rain and went off for a leaf hunt through the woods. Mr Brewer was in charge of the map and led us down a path, passed the lake, lots of obstacles and we even spotted the Gruffalo in the distance!
If you go down to the woods today you'll have a brilliant time!
