VIKING INVASION IN WOODLAND SCHOOL !!

Sixty young vikings invaded Woodland School today. They arrived kitted out with helmets and shields ready for battle with Mrs Chantler and Mr Palmer. Fortunately the viking hoardes decided to make friends with Mrs Chantler and Mr Palmer! The vikings shared their tasty home-made bread which was eaten along with a delicious viking vegetable stew, which was cooked over the open fire.

The wonderful vikings also made shelters with the sails from their longships.

Not a scrap of stew was left over when they marched away at the end of the afternoon for their next adventure!!

A Green Woodpecker has been visiting our Woodland School recently. It has a green body and a red head.

 The Green Woodpecker has a loopy, undulating flight. It has a loud, unusual call which sounds like laughing or abit like a squeaky door! You can find out more about this bird on the RSPB website.
