Today the children in KS1 went for a stroll through the trees near school. We have been looking closely at the types of trees found locally and have also been trying to identify the leaves which have fallen to the ground. We took some rubbings to experience the different feel of the bark on the trunks and finally made friends with a tree!
On Wednesday the children from Key Stage One all went out to explore the local area. We had a lovely walk from school, through some of the streets and along the paths by the beck, looking out for lots of different features. We found the houses were all very different. There was a wide range of places where people worked. There were some lovely open spaces to encourage nature and a mixture of different types of signs for people who use the streets and paths. The children were fantastic and really represented the school well, being polite and cheery for passers-by and local residents. Thank you to the volunteers who came with us!
