Our working party on Saturday getting organise and ready to go for the move. Thanks to all the parents and children who helped out and worked hard, what a great job done.
A full day of orientation, nature free play, looking at how the dye from a red cabbage can be used to indicate if something is acid, neutral or alkali (thanks Chris), icicles, singing, thinking about sustainability, housekeeping and recycling (thanks Mel), den building, food sharing (thanks Beth for our sausage hot dogs warmed on the fire). A wonderful day exploring and settling into our new home. What fun there is come.
Mudslides, music, archaeological findings and excavations, digging, school within the school, philosophy hour. One of the children said today on arriving in the grounds with a dusting of frosty ice and a cosy yurt 'its even more magical than yesterday'. It really is a winter wonderland.
Please remember to bring down a log for the fire when you arrive and bring your research on compost toilet - why do we separate wee and poo on our wonderful compost loo?
Wednesday has been another beautiful day. Lots of fun with mud, fires, storytelling with artefacts we have discovered, collecting sticks, thinking more about recycling - did you know it takes 450 years for a nappy to disappear in landfill. It was great to have Eva with us here on her first day. Remember to research compost toilets and bring in some anything bird related of interest as next week we are going to feed the birds and do some twitching :-)
