Surrey Hills and Chantry Wood

Today we walked from Pilgrims Way across Surrey Hills and through some of Chantry Woods. We had planned to go to Pewley Downs but found we couldn’t follow our planned route as the path was too narrow once we were almost there. We had to come another way along some country lanes and then streets back to town.

We spotted lots of different plants and trees including elder, speedwell, dock, nettles, plantain, oak and horse chestnut. Also saw a rabbit, squirrels and various birds. Found a magpie feather to bring home and ticked off lots in Jack’s I- Spy nature book.

Experiments in Demolition

Today’s mystery science lesson using explosives to knock down buildings and other structures. The activity was a game that involves trying to knock down part of the board without knocking it all down.

You have to swing the wrecking ball and try to knock down the cups, without knocking over the houses behind.
