Feeling energised from the sunshine and birds singing. We heard a beautiful chorus this morning; over the next few weeks we’re going to see if we can identify who song s who’s.

Inspired by the crow’s nest building skills, some of use built nests, some of us hunted for signs of Spring, but all of us enjoyed the start of Spring – even the smell of the freshly cut grass.

20/03/18 FIRE! What better day to start fire lighting skills? After a safety talk and thinking about the fire triangle, small groups worked with Mrs Humphries to light tinder with a Swedish fire stick – “It’s not as easy as it looks!” explained Wareham class.
