Today was our last woodland adventure until next year so we decided to revisit the other base. We walked through the dark woody path which was lined with trees that were decorated with twinkly lights - it looked very magical. After exploring the camp, we had a chocolate coin with our hot chocolate as a Christmas treat. We then walked back through the twinkly lights path to visit Basildon House. We saw three very tall decorated Christmas trees - one of them took 17 years to grow! We noticed that one of them was decorated with poppies which we knew was to remember soldiers who died in war. 

Lastly, we had a peek in the library where Christmas trees were made from stacking books and there were paper chains, bowls of baubles, candles and green plants. It all looked beautiful and helped get us in the mood to perform our school play which has a magical Christmas tree! Mrs Hodsdon
