With summer approaching and the weather improving, the primary classes embarked on their first summer project.
The boys all took part in helping to build a Live Willow Den:
With the expert help from Bob (www.organicplaygrounds.com) each class helped to place upright live willow branches and then weave and tie the Willow into a dome structure. Inside there are 12 log seats to add some comfort.
As the Willow is live and with lots of watering and tender loving care, it will begin to sprout and grow and will eventually become an enclosed space. We will add photos at various stages of development to show it really come alive!
The den will be used for storytelling and outside lessons as well as a space to just play and have fun.
The boys all took part and were excellent, Bob said it was pleasure to have come to the school and work with the boys.
The boys think the den is ‘really cool’ and can’t wait to start using it and see how it grows and develops.
A massive thank you to Bob who was amazing.
