Elder Snakes

This morning, Beeches learnt of another way that the elder trees they had located last week, could be of use. This time, we used the sticks rather than the elder flowers. The elder tree is special, as inside the sticks, there is a soft removable pith. This makes the sticks great for cutting and then threading.

The¬†children looked at the secateurs and listened carefully to a ‘tool talk’ so that they knew how to use the secateurs correctly. They carefully cut sticks into small pieces, pushed the centre out and then threaded them onto wire…

…making¬†lovely elder snakes.

We also had lots of fun choosing activities…including den making, the mud kitchen, hide and seek…

…and a great game of ‘What’s the time Mr. Gruffalo’! It was brilliant to see such lovely group co-operation, turn taking, and organisational skills…well done Beeches.
