Two thank-you’s…for our tippy tap and our visit to Sutton Park!

Our first thank-you in the Summer Term, goes to Mr. Mundye and Isabella, and to Zach too, for going into school with Mrs. Smith over the Easter break to construct our exciting new tippy-tap! It has proved to be very popular in our first week back…the children are really enjoying standing on the lever to tip the bottle, and using the warm water inside to wash their hands before snack time.

The second thank-you is for Daniel, a park ranger at Sutton Park, who gave us a lovely morning out! He explained about different trees, and helped the children to identify a silver birch. We walked to some heath land, collecting pine cones and discovering new baby trees and some pony poo on the way!

Then Daniel helped us to find a good sized tree to cut down.

We watched him¬†cut down the tree…it was exciting when it started to lean and fall! Then we looked at the stump and counted the rings. We think it was 23 years old.

Everyone worked together to carry the heavy tree up the hill to the path, then we all took turns sawing the tree into logs.

Lastly, we carried our logs back to the minibus and took them back to school. We will use them to make wood cookies during the term.

      It certainly was Adnan! I’m really glad that you enjoyed it and that you were so sensible and helpful on our trip out. You made me laugh when you told me that the pony poo was amazing!
