A visit to where the wild things are!

Today, after reading the story, 'Where the Wild Things are,' we went on our own adventure to the 'forest' near school. Just like in the story, we had our own 'wild rumpus.' We had great fun singing, dancing, making music, exploring, pretending, climbing, balancing, swinging and rolling!! We found some signs of spring - snowdrops, daffodils and buds and also fungus growing on the trees, as well as a hibernating hedgehog in a hollow.

As part of our topic on Three Billy Goats Gruff, Little Chicks have used a choice of fruit and vegetables to design a Troll or a Billy Goat character and then gobbled it up for their snack.
