Beech and Holly have had a super outing in Loughton.
We wrapped up in our waterproofs, warm sports kit and wellies and set off on our search for signs of autumn and treasure. We decided not to let a little British weather alter our plans.
The children eagerly collected leaves of brown, red and orange, in all shapes and sizes along our way.
As we walked, we were able to discuss what we could see around us. It was lovely to hear the children discussing the refuge collection, prompted by the bags and green bins which had been placed on the verges along Redland Drive. The children talked about how they recycle at their own houses. We looked at the chimneys and windows, the size and shape of houses in comparison to our own and different kinds of vehicles we saw on the roads.
We excitedly trip-trapped over a bridge at The Green as we approached Loughton Pavilion and wondered if we would wake the sleeping troll, luckily, he didn’t seem to be home!
The children climbed, swung and slid down the slide. The drizzle not dampening their spirits as they laughed and played on the equipment, making full use of the pirate ship. We rested on the rocks for our lunch and Isabelle told Mrs Okwuadigbo that “today has been the best day ever!”
We continued the circular route around Loughton back to The Grove passing some perfect muddy puddles along the way making good use of our wellies.
The children were impeccably well behaved, and we were all very proud of them.
Well done Beech and Holly.
Mrs Okwuadigbo & Miss Ascough
