Easter Fun At Wiggery Wood!

Badgers created an ‘Easter garden’ at the woods this week! They thought carefully about the Easter story and chose objects from the wood to represent it. This was followed by an Easter egg hunt. We also had fun with fractions thinking about halves and quarters with the colours of our suits!

Spotting Signs Of Spring At The Woods!

Yesterday was the perfect morning for Badgers to spot signs of Spring at Wiggery Wood. The sun was shining, the birds were singing and the bluebell shoots had grown taller! Spring is definitely on its way. Badgers managed to spot primroses, elder budburst and hazel catkins. Whilst looking for snowdrops, we stumbled across a crocodile …
