Year One spent a wonderful morning walking in Tockholes Woods. The canopy of trees made the woods seem dark and eerie as we entered through the latch gate and made our way deeper into the woodland. We stopped to look at the fungi growing on the bark of
tree roots and to identify different trees by their leaves, noting these down on our tree spotter sheets.
We collected leaves, twigs, nuts and seeds to use in our topic work back in class.
Halfway through our walk we stopped to drink our milk and Mrs Ramsden and Mrs Morrison read us 'The Gruffalo' story. It was so exciting to hear the story whist sitting in a real wood but...
we didn't see a Gruffalo!
On our way back through the trees we were amazed to see magical objects stuck in trees and bushes ! We spotted a fairy's wand and a tutu, a small crystal box with glitter inside, a beautiful sparkly purse and a tiny blue shoe.
We brought the items back to class. Who could they have belonged to?
As we waved goodbye to the woods we talked about all of the wonderful things we had seen. Before we got on the coach to return to school we had a delicious ice-cream at the Visitor's Centre Cafe. We had a really super morning but are still puzzled about those magical items in the 'Enchanted Woodland'.
