Maple Cross Explorers

Last week Maple Cross Explorers took place in the pouring rain.  Today there was glorious sunshine.  What a contrast!  Today some children really took a risk by trying something that they really found difficult.

This was the last week of the current activities and we are looking forward to new learning after the Easter holidays.  What have you learnt during the sessions?  What has been the most challenging area of the learning?

There was a lot of fabulous, collaborative learning on display this afternoon during Maple Cross Explorers.  The children were able to work together to build a shelter for themselves, a place for the Gruffalo to be safe from the elements, spiders webs and towers.  Another activity involved them using their senses, apart from their sight, to find a tree that they had been taken to blindfold.  Have a look at the photos and see if you can identify which activity is which.  What did you learn today?
