We're Going On a Bear Hunt
As part of our topic work, Reception class visited Nell Bank in Ilkley to go on a bear hunt. We had a wonderful day as the children squelched through the thick, oozy mud in their wellies, stumble tripped to the big, dark forest and tip-toed through the cave to eventually find the bear. Fortunately we had the perfect day for it and the rain the night before ensured that we got very muddy. After our lunch, the children enjoyed playing in the water park, going on a mini-beast hunt and stroking the chickens. All adults commented on how well behaved the children were on their very first school trip.
