Out and About at Fforest Fawr

Year 1 and 2 along with the Reception class went out exploring the woods behind Castell Coch today. We found so many things which we could tell you about- a dragon, slugs, spiders, acorns, beech nuts, stones, leaves and we made a den.

We watched out for the Gruffalo but didn’t see him although a few were sure that they had glimpsed a scary shadow in the distance! We gathered wood for a fire just in case we had to spend the night in our den but luckily our minibuses arrived to take us home..

One of the things we found was a knopper gall. We will be finding out about that tomorrow. Look out for another blog post on the subject.

Baking bread

Today we visited the senior school and made bread just like the baker in Pudding Lane! We loved the kneading of the dough – push push, fold, punch. Luckily we didn’t set fire to the room or start The Great Fire of Cardiff.
