Year 2 have been reading ‘Wild’ by Emily Hughes about a little girl who lives in the forest with the animals. We visited West Boldon Lodge to experience a woodland setting for ourselves. Whilst there we learnt about nocturnal woodland animals and their habitats, and we made dens for hedgehogs! We also made our own hedgehogs using clay, pine cones, sticks and other natural materials. We were able to hunt for minibeasts and think about where in the woods we would find them. Year 2 had a great day exploring in the fresh air!
