This half term, the children in class 5 (Reception) have been learning about Weather and Seasons. On Tuesday 24th January, the children visited Howe Park Woods; where they were able to explore the natural woodland (and play in the play area!). They ran through the woods and thoroughly enjoyed the freedom of the ‘great outdoors’. We went in search of evidence of woodland animals and their habitats; and were lucky enough to find mole holes, minibeasts and even a bear cave!!! Sadly we did not see a bear, however if you go down to the woods and you do spot that bear, please do let us know!
