Our trip to the New Forest
First we got on the coach. It took 1hour and 10 minutes to get there.
As we arrived, we had a snack and did our first activity which was a bit of history and then we chucked a wooden box with things on that people like to do at the New Forest. My one was painting landscape and Layton’s one was football. Also, we learnt about when the New Forest was created and why.
After that, we had lunch. When we were packing our lunch things away, a baby horse (foal) approached us and it was probably the first time he’d left his mother. He seemed very confused. We all stood very still so as not to scare it. Then the foal galloped away.
It was then time for another activity. We went to a wet place called the mire. We found out that the horses don’t tend to graze there as it is so wet. We also found out that there were bears and wolves in the forest. An interesting fact that we discovered was the last wolf was killed there when King Henry VIII was alive.
For our final activity we got taken back in time (sort of!). We sat in silence for a few minutes, listened to what we could hear and wrote it down on a piece of paper. Also, we learned about the ground-nesting birds, including the nightjar, lapwing and curlew.
We would recommend to go there again because it was an absolutely amazing experience!
