October Half Term: Day One



On day one, Shaun prepared the base for the wooden structure that will be burnt during Cody Dock’s halloween party on Saturday. The children did lots of painting on pieces of wood, which will then be displayed on the wooden structure once it’s complete.

Some children and parents did also some weaving and an eco printing experiment on cotton. The cotton bundles were boiled in a pan on the fire. Tomorrow, we’ll open up the bundles to see if the experiment worked! The children helped make a lovely soup on the fire by chopping up squash, onions, celery, carrots, potatoes and rosemary fresh from the garden.

To end the day, Emma read a story to everyone, which was well and truly appreciated by all the children. The smiles on their faces said it all!




September: Milling Flour and Flower Prints

On a crisp Autumn afternoon at Cody Dock, we thought of travelling back in time with a magical tool “The Flour Milling Wheel”.
The children experienced, enjoyed and learnt what it really means when parents and teachers say, “Good things come to those who wait and persevere” 😉.
A lot of effort went into grinding the flour, but it was totally worth the time, experience and of course the sheer delight, when we all devoured the very yummy pancakes 🥞… was a sight, you get to see , through our pictures.
The group also collected leaves and used water soluble crayons to create leaf imprints.
