Year 1 Trip to Alice Holt Forest

29 September 2017

Year 1 children visited Alice Holt Forest in search of the Gruffalo.

They began by following the clues on the Gruffalo Trail. The children found footprints to follow and used an App to bring the characters to life. They found mouse, snake, fox, owl and then the Grufflo himself! He was very noisy and hungry but all the children enjoyed having their photograph taken alongside him.

We also saw the Stick Man and the Gruffalo’s Child too. After a long walk around the busy trail, the children worked in teams to build dens and then finished off by having fun in the adventure playground. They had a fantastic day and asked lots of questions which will be answered during our topic lessons.
