Playdale

Many thanks to Mr Bland and the Playdale team for taking the time to show Bowfell class around the playing fields development last Wednesday morning. The children had a brilliant time dressing up in high visibility jackets and hard hats to take a tour of the site. They looked at a plan of the fields to see where the new equipment was being installed and got up close to some very interesting machinery and holes in the ground! Everyone is excited to see the new look playing fields in a few weeks time!


Dragon Almighty!

There were some funny goings on in Bowfell class last week which began on Monday when the children discovered their princesses had been frozen into blocks of ice! A letter accompanied this shocking discovery stating that ‘Dragon Almighty’ was on the loose, setting traps and challenges for the children! The remainder of the week saw the princesses locked in a treasure chest with padlocks to open and ended with a trail for Reception and Year One to our forest school area at Heaves. Here they discovered a dedicated ‘dragon zone’ with an apology letter from the naughty dragon himself asking for the children’s help to find his missing 11 eggs! Thankfully the children accepted his apology and got to work on the important task of finding the precious eggs in time before they hatched! They are now safely rehoused in Bowfell’s fairy garden. Whilst we were there the children also enjoyed making fairy houses and dragon caves from the natural materials around them as well as some yummy hot chocolate to warm up with after all their hard work.
