Explorer Day

We have had so much fun during Spring Term learning about different Explorers. So to finish our topic off we invited our grown-ups into school to take part in some Explorer type activities, such as map work and den building. We followed a map of our school to find letters that spelt out the name of a very famous Explorer, Christopher Columbus. We also spent some time building a den to see if we could survive if we were left on a desert island. Our final activity on the afternoon was around our fire pit. We learnt how important fire can be when living out in the wild both for cooking and keeping warm. We toasted hot cross buns and made s’mores – they were delicious!
