Treasure boxes for a Firebird

I've had a great term of telling Masha and the Firebird to schools, and they in return have rewarded me with poems and drawings and masks. Today I returned to Wimbledon High Juniors to accompany 40 year 2 girls up to Wimbledon Common, so they could leave treasure boxes of their work for the firebird to find - all the time making sure Baba Yaga the witch was not spying on us, so that she could steal the boxes for herself.
It was a glorious afternoon, and the girls wore their brightly decorated firebird masks.
The boxes were carefully hidden and then camaflouaged for extra protection.
We made our way back to school wondering when the firebird would arrive to find his treasure...
