Sadly this was Mouse’s last session with us until the summer. We have really appreciated her giving up her valuable time to volunteer with us in the woods again. We will miss her calm, quiet cheerfulness, sense of humour and wonderful ideas.
You will see from the pictures that she celebrated with slap up lunch today!
Year 6 got stuck in with all sorts of tasks today: continuing to dig the trench for the willow, which we hope will be in a growing vigorously by the time they return to the woods in June, washing some Lime bark and hanging it out to dry, ready for making cord, making cooking sticks, and making and cooking damper bread and eating it with frankfurters or honey.
There were mixed feelings as we returned to school: disappointment that this was the final session of the term, but excitement that there is something to look forward to later in the school year before they move onto secondary school.
