Our dream wildlife area

On Friday afternoon, the year one children came together to design their very own wildlife areas on the playground.  This was a lovely chance for the children to work with someone from the other year 1 class and they all did fanatically.  The challenge for them was to use only the natural things around d them to design the area of their dreams.  After a slow start, the imaginative juices started to flow and the children came up with come wonderful ideas.  We then introduced paper pictures of the animals and plants we would expect to find in our new wildlife area and allowed them to add them to their designs. The children had a wonderful afternoon and the weather thankfully held out for us! I wonder if our new wildlife area will look like any of their designs when it is complete?
