Fir Class invaded Forest School today as Saxons and beat their drumming rhythms to show they had conquered England! They also learnt how to build with wattle and daub. The ‘wattle’ was made from willow which was woven around hazel sticks. The ‘daub’ was a messy business, made from a mix of mud, clay and straw – and they mixed it with their bare hands and their feet!
Another group made bird-nest bags to hang in the trees for birds to find materials to make their nests with. They filled mesh bags with upholstery stuffing, wool and tiny twigs.
