Forward Footing There and Back photo set here
For our third Forward Footing walk we staged a closed event
with pupils and staff from Year Two at
Priory Lower School in Bedford.
Here is the essence of the walk in their words
Year Two and I went to the river, we all walked there.
When we got there
we sat on the ground
and Carole and Jo, the artists,
explained what we had to do
They handed out viewers,
a card with a window,
we looked and drew what
we saw through the window
onto card flags.
We put them on sticks and
put them in the ground by the wall.
They made it look very colourful.

We made plaits together
and tied them by the river.
We wrapped ribbon around some trees.
We had a picnic.
We brought our lunch
and water in paper bags,
we brought some
for Carole and Jo
We placed colourful stones around a tree

We stamped words on card,
words about our day
and Carole put them on the wall

On Wednesday the 15th of April the whole
of Year 2 went to the glittery, sparkly river.
We went to the river because we wanted
to decorate the whole beautiful river
We decorated the floor with some chalks.

We went to the pretty riverside with artists Carole and Jo.
We went to the river to brighten it up.
We ended with bubble wands
We had lots of fun!
We made art!
The artists gave us a kit bag full of things for more walks.
We hope we go on more walks soon!
Thank you for a lovely Blog Year 2
and so making it such a memorable day!
It may have only been a short distance
but we covered a lot of ground.
