Minibeasts and Wild Art at Painshill Park

On Thursday 25th May the Reception boys were very excited to visit the fabulous Painshill Park in Cobham.

We enjoyed two very special workshops: a Minibeast Safari and a Wild Art experience, expertly led by Lisa and Adam, teachers from the Painshill Park education team. 

The boys were fascinated to be exploring the woodland habitat of minibeasts and observe various creatures, which included woodlice, centipedes, millipedes, beetles and many more!  

The Wild Art workshop was packed with ideas for being creative in the great outdoors. A favourite activity for many of the boys was making minibeasts by literally squelching natural materials onto trees with mud! The boys also enjoyed decorating masks by mixing their own ‘paint’, using charcoal from the fire pit and various colours of mud. They painted this on the masks with feathers.

Thank you to the parents who accompanied us on this trip and took part in all the events so enthusiastically. 

It was a very special day and one that the adults and boys will no doubt remember for many years to come.

Miss Dennis
