Smelly herb potions

10th May 2021

Today Maples class made some marvellous smelly potions using different herbs. They used a pestle and mortar to crush and mix the herbs with water and then carefully spooned them out into small pots for us to smell. Some of us even used it as perfume! We thought the mint and lavender smelt lovely…butt the curry leaves didn’t make such a great perfume!
We made stick puppets, which we used for a puppet show on our forest school stage. One show in particular lasted for a long time...we were thrilled to see such beautiful shared and cooperative play.
And in other news… We rescued ladybirds, dug for worms, made pictures, and found lots of other exciting things to do!
