On Tuesday 18th September we went to Dartmoor to find out about Bronze Age settlements. We were met by two guides who showed us round the important archaeological site at Merrivale and told us stories from the time.. We saw the standing stones and burial cists as well as evidence of homes. Afterwards we went to the information centre at Princetown.

This half term in Forest school we have been thinking about life in the Iron Age and how they would have made their clothes. We had a go at finger weaving, stick weaving and then built a large loom. We also dyed sheep's wool using natural materials e.g. onion skins, beetroot and stinging nettles.

On Tuesday, we all took part in a Play leader training workshop led by Sharon Kee. We talked about the qualities we will need to be a play leader and took part in a range of games. But most importantly, we had fun!

Now we're looking forward to sharing these activities with the younger children at lunchtimes.

On Tuesday 16th October Class 2 and Class3 went to the Farmwise exhibition at the Exeter showground. We had a great time finding out about so many different things e.g. how sausages and burgers are made, what the different cereal crops look like and are used for, how Exmoor ponies are cared for.  We also made biscuits and bread and sampled clotted cream and fruit salad.
