We spent virtually the whole day out and about, walking roughly 5 miles and taking in some gorgeous scenery in private woodlands.
Keith, our Braeside instructor, led us down the canal and when we reached a clearing off the track, the children played a game to get them thinking about oxygen and trees - they had to run without breathing!!
Whilst they were walking, the children had bug pots and could collect small creatures to look at closer and they also had to identify leaves, which got particularly exciting as they spotted all of our class names.
After a picnic lunch by the stream, the children learnt about the artist Andy Goldsworthy and created their own natural art pieces using the things they found around them like leaves, petals and twigs.
