Nurture Group children, and years 1,4,5,6 all contributed to making a
new willow dome and "crinkle crankle fedge", with secret doors too! We
had two of the warmest February days (usually I am doing these workshops
in cold and rain!) The materials for the structures came from pruning
the Nursery willow tunnel that was planted about 5 years ago. Great
features of these workshops were the team working required, opportunity
for physical effort (who needs PE when you are wielding a mallet) and
the application of practical maths/numeracy skills throughout the design
and construction. The mound behind was recently constructed and has
been sown with grass and wild flowers, although it is acknowledged that
these will struggle to survive when it is played on later in the year!
