Reception had their first ever outing all together and what
an adventure it was! The excitement started on the minibus, a first time for
most. The thrill of passing familiar villages, fields and even shops ensured
the journey was far from quiet and I’ve certainly learnt a thing or two about
what and where all the Mummies go during the day! Mrs Harrison greeted us and
helped us off the bus, coats were fastened, hoods pulled on (it was very wet)
we were ready!
The band of intrepid
explorers set off across the park to explore the beautiful grounds. The woods
proved to be a great hit with mountains of bark, muddy puddles, fallen trees
and even a fairy’s hut! We had great fun foraging for conkers, sweet chestnuts
and leaves of varying shapes, sizes and colour. The maze was discovered and the
hunt was on to find a hedgehog with their name on amongst the undergrowth. Mrs
Harrison had one final challenge for us – to pull the enormous turnip from the
ground. We all took hold and heaved, up it popped and down we toppled! Roll on
our next outing.
