We had an amazing session this afternoon, Casper and Jack set up and started the main fire. On this we cooked apple. We played in the mud pit and made a hammock.
We were lucky today, the rain held off for us and we had a lovely session. There was lots of den and shelter building and the children have made a new mud kitchen which was great fun. The bark removal team have had a great time spreading our new bark pile round the tree area and getting to grips with using a wheelbarrow. It is definitely getting colder now, so please remember coats next week. Amy
It was a lovely afternoon to go outside, we were very lucky and had enough adults to build with us, do some gardening and open the pond area.
Amy and Mark helped us to make different structures, swings and dens which we really enjoyed. Karen and Rianne did pond dipping with us and we found lots in there including newts, nymphs and snails.
Mark took a group to do some gardening and they got loads done outside in our flower beds and planters. We replanted somethings and planted out the seedlings we had grown in class.
As well as this we had fun climbing and digging we were lucky it wasn’t too hot or cold. We had a great time and can’t wait till next week.
It was cold but wet today we got out the clay and some tools it was great fun and we are looking forward to next weeks session. We will be having a fire.
It was a grim day, lots of rain and cold as well. Luckily we found out that means there is lots of mud to play with. We had great fun in our mud kitchen and made hammocks as well. Some of the suggestions for next week are clay people and a fire… Watch this space.
It was a amazingly sunny afternoon. We set up a kitchen and started to look at how we would start a fire. We used a flint and steel and cotton wool at first (this took some practice). Then we look at different things and how easy they were to burn. Mrs Mann will teach us how to set a bigger fire next week. Sorry due to technical difficulty we didn’t get a lot of photos today.
We had our second session today, we were lucky with the weather and managed to avoid the rain. We learnt how to put up hammocks (and how to get in them). We worked together and opened a restaurant using our mud kitchen. This meant some of us prepared food while other people went and harvested ingredients. We had a great session, enjoy our photo gallery.
