Year 2 experienced a wonderful outdoor experience on their trip to Weston Park. The weather was a bit cloudy and rain threatened but it did not dampen the children’s enthusiasm. At the edge of the woods, they participated in a host of creative activities: tie-dying with natural colours, leaf printing, moulding clay creatures and cooking over a campfire. In the wooded area, they enjoyed lots more fun: bug hunting, bug craft, and pond dipping. In between these, the  children even managed to try out endeavours like den construction, mud kitchen and tyre swinging. The day ended with the burning of  ‘The Great Fire of London’ houses. Just like in 1666, they caught fire very quickly and eventually the flames were extinguished by a chain of children firefighters passing buckets of water down the line. Only four sorry-looking houses remained.  

It was a full-on, exciting day, which the children took in their stride. Well done Year 2 for displaying exemplary behaviour and the BCS values on your last trip in Pre-Prep!
