They were so yummy! Can you

Mr Fox’s Woodland Party

Year 1 had an exciting Monday afternoon at Mr Fox’s woodland party. Before the party started, we prepared a trail of colourful pebbles to help our parents and carers find us. Mr Fox then left us his own trail of clues to help us find where he was hiding! The children also made their own woodland creatures using conkers and matchsticks, read some woodland-themed
