30 Days Wild

This year we are taking part in The Wildlife Trust’s 30 Days Wild challenge. It is a month long initiative that aims to get people making the most of the outdoors and engaging with nature.

So far, 121830 people have signed up to take part, including Button Lane!

We would like you to do one 'wild; thing per day throughout the whole month: for your health, well-being and for the planet. That’s 30 simple, fun and exciting 'Random Acts of Wildness'.

Click on the link for our checklist to see what we’ve got planned. We will also be posting these to Twitter each day, or you can choose to do your own. Whatever you decide to do, make sure to be safe, respect nature and above all, have fun and don’t forget to let us know what you get up to!

Hi mrs dyson and miss Hudson jones. Lucas is very much missing his friends and school, over the easter Lucas made his easter hat, easter decorations for the tree outside, painting rainbow to support our key workers and coloured in the front bricks on the house, lucas did abit of clay modling, roleplay with his Cafe shop and can be used to do a puppet show. Lucas has been helping tidying the front garden doing abit of sweeping and getting involved with seed planting we are growing sunflowers, poppys, lillys, corn flower, sweet william. We have been to the park a couple of times to play football, did we a nature trail hunt, took his bouncy hopper to the shop on the way back he said my legs are soo tired, we did our name exercise sheet in the garden lucas enjoyed it and did the whole sheet. Lucas made short bread cookies and they were very lovely, lucas has been getting involved with cooking we made corn beef ash the other day and Lucas sliced the corn beef and counted how many slices there was. Yesterday lucas found a Beatle in the garden and he has made the Beatle a home and called him Climy I asked why the name Climy he says becuase he likes to climb alot.

Jessica has been learning how to bake. She helped weigh out all the ingredients and mix everything up. She's also been keeping up with her spellings. We have been using the words in the middle of her reading journal. The first day she got 40/69 & today she got 47/69. She was really pleased with herself
