Welly Afternoon

Today is the first time Foundation have been out exploring our wonderful Conservation Area. They loved splashing through the stream and collecting autumn leaves. They have learnt a autumnal leaf poem.

In the woods we read our class story ‘It’s My Birthday’ and when we returned to our smaller outdoor area some of the children enjoyed making mud cakes. We also had fun playing team games with the tyres and bug hunting. We hope you enjoy looking at these photos.

After building their bridges they uploaded a photo of it onto their seesaw account. Foundation are getting really confident at using the iPads and uploading their work.
