Tools Galore!

Cedars had a very busy morning, using a range of tools and choosing their own activities. We were all really impressed today at how independent and confident the children have become. They work together, look out for one another, cooperate very well, are creative and helpful too. And best of all, they invent great games to play together!

Aside from raking, litter picking, rope swinging, creating an enormous hole in the digging pit, making mud pies and climbing, these are some of the other things Cedars made today…

Knife skills were developed when removing the bark and whittling down the Hazel sticks we cut last week. These will be used as skewers, to cook bread dough next week.

Conkers were requested last week- so today we enjoyed stringing them together to make various conker creationsimg_0632img_0627img_0620img_0635

The bit and brace drill was used to make a hole in a wood cookie. The children chose what to decorate their wood cookies with…they were either painted or small tacks were hammered in to help create a beautiful woolen tree. img_0641

    I liked to do my Santa, I used a drill and some paints on a wood cookie.

    I enjoyed stripping the stick with a knife and putting some conkers on thread with Miss Topham.

    I made spaghetti bolognaise using mud with Tyrese, Thomas, Elijah and Caithan. We couldn’t eat it because you can’t eat mud and it wouldn’t taste nice. my favourite part is the digging pit and looking for gold.

    I enjoyed playing with my friends in the mud kitchen and making a Christmas Tree. I used wool, wood cookie and small black nails and a hammer. I used a knife to get the wood of the stick.

    Using the knife was fun, because it was the first time using a knife and I enjoyed making a Christmas Tree Ornament, and I like making food in the mud kitchen.

    Wow boys! What a lot of things you’ve enjoyed doing. And how clever, sensible and confident you all are…you’ve done and learnt lots of new things this term haven’t you? Well done everyone.
