Trip to Bishops Wood for Year 2

Year 2 kicked off the remainder of the summer term with an exciting trip to Bishops Wood, one of our favourite places to visit and one which we’re lucky enough to go to on a regular basis.

To start the day, the children enjoyed a walk to a new hidden Forest School site where they went on a hunt for creature fact cards. After learning about habitats, the children worked together in small teams to create a den for a fox.

Following a quick stop for lunch, the afternoon session focussed on knots, and how to make a range of knots to improve their shelters. Carrying on with the fox theme, the children sat together to enjoy the beginning of Fantastic Mr Fox, which inspired a number of games, including Sly Fox, What’s the Time Mr Fox, and Foxes and Farmers.

Well done Year 2 – a wonderful day of learning outdoors. Thank you to Bishops Wood for a marvellous trip.
