Ash Class’ Fairytale Adventure

May 15, 2015

On Wednesday Ash Class took a trip to The Croft to learn about plants and trees and how they have changed since we went in Autumn and Winter. We looked for flowers, blossom and buds on the hedges and trees. The children remember that trees that don’t lose their leaves are called Evergreens but we struggled to remember deciduous (which is a bit tricky!). The children enjoyed looking at the different types of grass and plants that were in the wet area of the farm and Ruth showed us how to peel the outside off the long needle grass and scrape out the white stuff inside (lovely).

After this we headed down to the woods to look at some trees but when we got there we noticed some strange things had been going on. The children could see there were animals and paper and other objects in the woods. When we went through the gate we found a letter addressed to us, which set us 3 tasks – to make soothing music for Sleeping Beauty, build a house of sticks for a little pig and lay a trail for Hansel and Gretel. The children were so excited!!

We split up into three groups and had a go at each task. While we moved from task to task we found that some other fairy tale visitors had been through the woods. Take a look at our photographs and see if you can name all the characters who had visited.
