P2/3 played a great game outside. It was called “Squirrels in a tree.” All the class scampered about like squirrels and when I called “1 squirrel in a tree” two people joined hands to make a tree and another person came inside between them to be a squirrel inside their tree ! The squirrel was trying to evade a swooping owl on the hunt!

After this we worked in groups to make animal homes using leaves, twigs, grass, logs, berries. We had homes made for fox, squirrel, snake and all the class worked well as part of a team and were very focussed on what they were doing. These activities kept us all warm outside too!
