Adventurous CIRP

Posted by on May 19, 2014

I took a few different things to the woods today ready for CIRP, we had magnifying glasses, den making kits and clay. The children explored the woods and found a few different minibeasts. Can you remember what you found. As always Scott got busy tying knots. Everyone made a clay pot and used sticks to make patterns in them.
We found out today why I ask you to have your arms and legs covered in the woods. At this time of year there are lots of nettles growing – and they sting! We found out that dock leaves grow near to nettles and if you rub them on a nettle sting it makes it feel better.
We also tried lots of things at the fire circle. Look at the pictures to see some of the things we tried today.

Everyone persevered with the fire steel and some managed to catch a spark on the cotton wool. How did it feel if you were able to make a flame?

I made some nettle crisps today! I wasn’t keen but everyone else said they were nice. I wonder if you would like them?

      Did you really like the nettle crisps? Would you like them better if they were covered in chocolate?

    Lyndon found a bright green catapiler on a branch, and then we found a black spiky catapiler on the bench. I like catapiler
    Because they are interesting.
