17th September 2014 Year 1 took advantage of the Indian Summer to go outdoors.
Mr Fox, our Outdoors Specialist in Residence, took the Year 1 class on a river and woodland walk today. The class spent all morning looking at the flora and fauna in our local area, as well as discussing the safety of being around water and canals.
Taking advantage of the weather in the afternoon, the children then made scarecrows using natural materials (other than string).
Whilst the jury is still out as to whether any crows would actually be scared of the designs, the children worked well together in a team effort to design the scarecrows and thoroughly enjoyed being out in the Indian Summer.
