Our first session back at Basildon Park was a dry one. The day started out chilly until the sun came out. A perfect morning for Woodland School. The children remembered all the Woodland rules to keep us safe.

Our first task was to work in pairs to create a suitable home for a dinosaur. The criteria was to build a dry shelter that would protect the dinosaurs from the cold, the wind, the rain and predators. We witnessed examples of good teamwork and cooperation, sharing ideas and using them. Another task in pairs was for one child to find a natural object and describe it to their partner. This worked well and the children enjoyed it. In their independent activities, climbing the fallen tree was very popular. Thank you to Mrs Miller for her help during our session. Mrs Herbert
