This Saturday we had a poetry and story telling session coupled with weaving, building and cooking on the fire. The session started with a walk and a tree climb. The group then played some games and collected wood ready for the fire. Once it was lit the group sat down to discuss the 'animals' they had brought to forest school and some poetry lines they had prepared. The group created a story with rhyming poetry all about a 'curious' alpaca who went on a journey and saw many different things from different parts of the country and other countries too. The children used a variety of different vocabulary and cultural differences were embedded throughout. The group then collected tall grasses ready for weaving a panel and then set to work. After the potatoes, beans and hot chocolates were ready and we settled down for lunch. Once lunch had been thoroughly enjoyed, more weaving took place, and the group continued to feed the fire. We discovered two new areas for building camps at future Saturday Clubs!
