Year 3 had a fantastic day in the Forest of Dean, with the support of Reading Buddies from our business friends Deloitte. Four buddies joined the class for the trip, which was all about exploring the Forest, hearing stories from storyteller Martin Maudsley, making our own creatures and more! Check out the video, pictures and children's comments!
Camron: I liked everything on the trip but my favourite part was making a sea-serpent with three heads.
Finlay: I liked making my journey because when I got home it reminded me of all the fun things that happened.
Hassan: I liked the storyteller because he was funny and told us lots of stories.
Suheyla: I liked the journey stick because I could take it home and tell a story to my sister.
Ramla: I liked hunting for stuff to make my name and my journey stick.

This is the first of our 'Magical Moments' in the news section of the website. Each week we collect a range of pictures of the great learning and activities that have taken place and use them to make a slideshow for the Friday assembly. Of course, not everyone can get to the assembly, so we are adding a selection of the pictures to the website each week. We hope you enjoy them!
