This week it was dry and sunny at Basildon although rather chilly in the woods. Time to start thinking about bringing gloves and an extra pair of socks!

The adults were all impressed how engaged the children were in their little groups of Independent learning. These activities included hide & seek, balancing and climbing trees. We also searched for fungi on the forest floor. All the children remembered we can look at it but on no account must we touch it. Hiba found some chalk so we measured each other's heights and drew the findings on an old tree trunk. Jessie and Malakhai were the tallest.

Daisy remembered we had been finding suitable small logs to make into instruments last week. So a few of us found some more and we made a band. Sergio had two pieces of Flint to tap together and Jess and Hiba made a large guitar type instrument! Mrs Herbert
