Welcome to Athelstan Community Primary School

Last week we had a special visitor called Adam who took the children down to the orchard to take part in a woodland workshop. The morning involved lots of exciting activties that the children absolutely loved. They made their own clay animals using natural resources found in the orchard and then they made habitats so their animal would have shelter. Adam talked to the children about what living things need in order to surive which links with our science topic 'animals and their habitats'. The children decided that we also needed to give the animals food and water. Adam showed the children how to make a sock filter and the children made their own so they would have clean water for their animal.

Afterwards, the children made dens in groups big enough to provide shelter for themselves. Once they were finished the children went inside their den and Adam tested how waterproof they were...the children loved that part! Afer all that hard work we needed some food and a drink. We sat around a camp fire and had hot chocolate, marshmallows and popcorn. What a lovely end to a fantastic afternoon!
