Popcorn over the fire in New Wood

The Year 2 used Dragon Sneezes this week to practice their fire lighting skills. This can be a challenging thing to master but they all showed great resilience and we had fire in every session.

We used the fire to make more charcoal for natural paint. This is done by cutting green wood, we used holly and bramble, and popping them into a tin with holes in the lid. This is then placed on the fire until flames come out of the holes. Perfect charcoal sticks every time!

For several weeks the children have been making wild flower seed bombs and this week we threw them onto the river bank, some children even got to use the sling-shot to launch them.

Elsewhere there was crafting, sawing, fairy furniture making, den building, swinging, clay creations, rolling down hills, obstacle courses, tadpole watching, bee hotel making and much more fun!

We finished off with some delicious fire popped popcorn! So Tasty!!
