If you go down to the woods today…

Last Friday we went to Weston Woods for the morning. First we went on a trail through the woods. We followed clues to find the characters from The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson. We found the mouse, the fox, the owl and the snake but although we found some Gruffalo fur and the Gruffalo’s house we didn’t find the Gruffalo. We think we may have scared him away!

Next we had a well earned rest, ate our fruit and biscuits and had a drink of juice.

After that we created some art in the style of Andy Goldsworthy who is an artist that uses natural materials in his work. Then we hunted for bugs and minibeasts and we found creatures such as spiders, wasps,caterpillars, earthworms, earwigs, snails, woodlice,slugs, dragonflies, ladybirds,ants, centipedes and millipedes.

Finally we came back to school for lunch. We all had an awesome time although we were all very tired!
