We visited Forest School and met Emma from 'Wild Things'. She helped us to toast marshmallows on the campfire. We had to listen carefully to instructions and remember to blow the marshmallows ten times before we ate them. The marshmallows tasted fantastic and we really enjoyed them with our hot chocolate.
We had a visit from Mud Pie Arts. They ran a drama workshop for us based on the story 'What the Ladybird Heard' by Julia Donaldson. We pretended to be on the farm and had to do all the jobs a farmer might do, such as feeding the chickens and cleaning out the pigs. We listened really well to instructions and enjoyed acting out the story especially making the animal noises!
Our teachers were really proud of us all on our school trip. In the morning, we were really excited to stroke a real snake and a bearded dragon. We also had the opportunity to hold a giant snail and a baby stick insect. We saw lots of different animals, on our tour outside, including alpacas, lemurs, racoons, wallabies, parrots and cockatiels. On our tour inside, we discovered a snake, terrapins, armadillo, tarantula and clown fish exactly like Nemo and Dory!
During our STEM ( Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Week, we had a special visit to Forest School. Emma from 'Wild Things' taught us how to use tools to join together wood to make fairy houses.
