Upon arrival there were some willow whips readily cut for use. Everybody sat on the forest school benches and stripped some of the bark. They noticed the difference in bark between older and younger willow, the smell and textures once it had been stripped. After walking up to the forest school area through the sheep field and alpacas there was a race across the field with Frisbees to see how many throws it would take. After this, students designed and sketched some ideas of puppets, props or sculptures they would like to make from the withy's. they then set to work with snips and tape to see what they could achieve. It was quite difficult but everybody had fun. After eating lunch all the forest schoolers toasted a marshmallow (or two) over the fire. We are really looking forward to completing some props and sculptures tomorrow at the forest school summer club! Well done everybody you were fantastic today!
