Lost Words

Nature is a wonderful gift that is given and we are very fortunate to have our very own woodland in which we embrace many cross curricular opportunities. Words such as otter, bramble and kingfisher are being lost in a busy world, we are determined at Althorpe and Keadby that these words should not be lost and that nature is celebrated in a diverse and holistic way.




Some children worked in Bramble Bank Woods to enjoy the wonder of camp fire cooking. The children enjoyed making "apple smores" they carefully chopped apples, toasted marshmallows and then squished it all together and finally topped with chocolate - delicious!


Some children made grass heads. We can't wait to see it grow!


Activities centered around the Lost Words book

Our activities here are based around the animals found within the book, so we have been using mixed media to create oil pastel pictures, sun catchers and bird mobiles.


Some children worked in Bramble Bank Woods to find out more about the birds which live and visit there. They went on a trail to learn about robins, magpies, great tits, chaffinches, starlings and wrens. They also made bird feeders. 

Another group made 3D models of newts which also live in the local area.
