Well, after weeks of waiting, the day of our very first Fresh Air Friday arrived and we were all very excited! We knew that our grown-ups were coming in for lunch too so today was going to be even more special!
First, we put our coats and wellies on and went for a walk around our enormous school grounds. Mrs Burns had read us a story about a mole so we went hunting for mole -hills. We didn’t find any around school but we did see a number of small holes that may have been created by an animal.
When we looked through the green gate, we saw what looked like mole hills on the field outside of school so decided to investigate after lunch.
At 1pm, after we had said goodbye to our visitors, we set off out of the front door and headed in the direction of where we had seen those mole hills. On the way, we saw hoof prints and tractor tyre marks and lots of mole hills!
We then headed into the woods where we saw (and threw!) lots of Autumn leaves; talked about the changes to the trees in Autumn and talked about the roots of the trees and the important jobs they do before setting off back to school ready for home time.
Mrs Farnaby and Mrs Burns were so proud of our grown up and sensible behaviour and superb listening that they said we can go another little walk very soon.
Here are some photographs from our first Fresh Air Friday:
