Our First Wild Windy Warm Wednesday

We had a great time on our first Wild Wednesday of the new school year this week. Each week we will spend the day out on our school field and in the open air in the grounds of the school where we can play, learn, share, observe, experiment, count, build, listen, talk and sing ….all with the wind in our hair and the rain and the sun on our faces!
We began the day by setting up our outdoor spaces.
We dragged the very long hose from the main building, across the track and into the field so we now had our own water supply.
We rolled and heaved the new logs from Mr Nevins at the sawmill and placed them carefully in a big circle. This would be where we would sit to listen, to share new information and later to have our snacks and lunch. (We can all see each other when we do this. ) Every now and again,  a teacher rang our big school bell and we knew we needed to head for the logs and sit down .
We also had a digging and earth moving area where we could fill buckets with soil for our mud kitchen. We have lots of shelter building equipment and had fun with the wind crashing our shelters down until we learned how to lash them down better!
We made Blobsters, Blobster shelters, journals to keep our future learning in and woodwork creation with hammers, nails and saws. 
Checking on the wind direction with our new weather cock was interesting because we discovered the wind was coming from the west today. It was warm but very wild.
We have lots of photos to add to this page and once we organise them you'll see for yourself what we  got up to in more detail. 
At the end of the  our day , we had  a story under the old ash tree in the sheltered corner of the field. We'll hear a story from the book each week and the book is an old one called The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton.
