Twilight Team and Other Adventures

🍁 πŸ‚πŸA lovely first week back to school – a few pictures from the school site: mandala making with years 5 and 6 with year 5 using the β€˜Go Find It’ cards and finding literally whatever we could (lots of great β€˜thinking outside the box’). FUN had making BIG movements dragging along the LARGEST sticks and branches we could find, helping each other to keep safe. SOME brilliant collaborative den building, laughs had playing bat πŸ¦‡ and moth and coming together around the fire for some fat ball coconut oil lamp making πŸŒ™ πŸ’«πŸ‚πŸπŸ‚

πŸπŸ‚πŸMY after school club will be pretty much in the TWILIGHT zone (we are calling ourselves the β€˜Twilight Team’ 😊) this term and I am SO excited about the dusky opportunities this will bring, altering my session flow so we use the best light for our tool work before the sun sets and THEN making the most of it with opportunities planned which could include blind rope trails, star gazing, bat πŸ¦‡ watching (before they hibernate), playing with light and enjoying fire and food. IT will be game heavy to keep us warm with new suggestions made each week guided by our coming together and session plans led by each group.πŸπŸ‚πŸπŸ˜ŠπŸ’š

πŸ‚πŸπŸ‚MY photos are from the following morning before the school opens. We also made the oil lamps at home after half termπŸπŸ‚πŸ
