After being at school for only four weeks, Reception Class ventured out on their first school trip to Nell Bank, set in the beautiful countryside surrounding the Ilkey Moors. As part of our "Brilliant Bears" topic this half term, we have loved sharing Michael Rosen's book, "We're Going on a Bear Hunt". We re-enacted the story on our visit to Nell Bank in a search to find Nell Bank's own Brucie Bear, which the children loved. We also built bear dens, went mini beast hunting in Nell Bank's mini beast hotel, pond dipping and explored the fantastic water play park. The children (and adults) had an amazing time. They were impeccably behaved throughout and so well mannered, which really impressed the staff at Nell Bank and made our staff feel extremely proud of our children. Take a look at some photos of our adventures.
