Wild Woods

This year, our Reception and Year 1 children will spend every Friday afternoon exploring and learning in the Wild Woods with Mrs Leaf, Mrs Polley the Parrot, Mrs Ladybird and Mrs Hedgehog.  The other classes will all enjoy some sessions later in the year.

14.7.2023 ANNUAL WILD WOODS WATER FIGHT!

It rained...but we didn't let it spoil our annual water battle!  Great fun was had by all and everyone was suitably wet and muddy by the end of the session.  I officially declare the winners of the Hintlesham and Chattisham CofE Primary School water battle (dun dun dun...cue suspenseful music)...EVERYONE!  Thanks for another wonderful year in our Wild Woods.

30.6.2023 INTERNATIONAL MUD DAY!

Well...it was messy but it was SO much fun! From mud spas to muddy puddle jumping (and bathing!) Thank you to all of the children who embraced the mud-and well done to those who managed to stay clean!
A great time was had by all-we can't wait until next year already!

We began our session in the Wild Woods with a 'sit spot' where we took the time to notice all of the wonderful things around us. For the rest of the session, our favourite activities were looking for special treasures to create some artwork with (in the style of Andy Goldsworthy).

EYFS and Year 1 have enjoyed another fun week of exploring in the Wild Woods.  Some of the children really enjoyed creating our new weaving loom and hanging a 'magic feather' line whilst others LOVED chatting to the creatures and their friends on the bush telegraph.

After lots of fun playing together (Year 2 joined us as well) and taking a moment to be thankful for all of the lovely things surrounding us, we had a picnic together, sang some songs and released our butterflies into the Wild Woods.

To celebrate National Bee Day 2023, the children enjoyed learning some bee facts, creating their own bees and enjoying some hapa zome (hammering flowers to make a print).

12.5.2023

It was another wet and muddy afternoon in the Wild Woods with lots of muddy puddle jumping fun!  There was plenty of time for swinging, climbing, drawing (using natural colours), talking on the bush telegraph and making bug hotels too.
