On Monday we had a wonderful time at the park with the other year 1 children. We were really lucky that the rain stayed away!
First we had a brilliant time floating the boats we made in DT on the duck pond. Some of them floated really well, we talked about what made these float well and why some were sinking. We loved pulling them along on their strings around the pond!
Next we visited the herb garden, we explored the different smells and talked about what they reminded us of, We thought the mint leaves smelt like toothpaste! We also spotted an unusual shiny beetle that we thought looked like it was from space.
After our snack we went on a little treasure hunt to see what natural treasures we could find with a friend. We looked at the different shaped leaves and talked about how the park was different to the beach that we visited last week. Then we got to play int he park and played with the parachute which was brilliant :-).
