The damp, muddy slope in the woodland clearing was an instant draw for Rafa and Esme. They used sticks as picks to help them scale the incline like mountaineers. Poppy and Zara found time to make some rubbings of the different trees, noticing the textures and patterns they made. On the ball run, Harry C made a twig bridge and adapted it several times to make sure it was high enough for the ball to roll under.  Jacob, Esme and Phoebe Tovey used their arms as bridges, quickly lifting them clear as the ball whizzed down the pipe.  After a snack break, we all went for a walk up the hill where the children spotted a fallen tree trunk to balance along.  Finally after running energetically up the hill, the children took turns to play on the wooden instrument, noticing the different sounds each log made.
