WASPS Forest school

WASPS Forest school in the dark!

WASPS Autumn Forest school is taking place November and December with a group of 11 KS2 children , it is dark for much of the session! The children still enjoy the activities and use the torches, fire light and gaz lantern light to continue the activities. So far we have used bow saws to make characters, palm drills to make animals, build a den, cooked dampers and pop corn on the open fire, the children are looking forward to making hapa zome flags, whittling and toasting marshmallows to make smores!
