Pupils and staff from Banham Primary School have spent an adventurous day in the woods.
Despite the wet weather, the youngsters had fun learning outside dressed head to toe in their waterproofs.
Local farmers Ben and Julie Cole invited the children to work and play in a area of woodland tucked away on a farm in the village.
The pupils were excited as soon as they arrived when they were transported by tractor and trailer to the entrance of the woodland.
Not fussed by the non-stop rain the pupils worked together building dens, creating works of art with clay and other natural materials and collecting and observing mini beasts, including frogs and toads.
A giant tarpaulin shelter was strung between the trees to provide an area for the youngsters to eat their lunch before it later became a play den for the woodland elves and fairies.
