This week the children in Year 1 went on a trip to Blackhills Campsite. The day in the woods at Blackhills provided an excellent opportunity for the children to develop practical experiences based on these stories; ‘Hansel and Gretel’ and ‘Goldilocks and the three Bears’.
When the children arrived Phil Lowde was there to greet them.
Links to the story Hansel and Gretel Story.
First they learned how to build a shelter to hide from the wicked witch!
Then the children had to follow a trail of stones to find some treasure hidden in a bird box .
The children had a little break and were able to have a drink.
The children worked together to build a ‘Candy House’ and they used sticks and marshmallows.
After that Phil talked to the children about how to light a fire safely and they each had an opportunity to use a flint and steel to make a spark to start the fire. Then finally they got to toast marshmallows and make a smoree!
They had a lovely picnic and were all extremely hungry after working so hard all morning.
Goldilocks and the Three Bear
The children made a chair and a bed for Mummy, Daddy & Baby bear.
The children had a fantastic time and they learned lots of new and exciting things. They were all extremely well behaved and they were a credit to our school.
