November magic

We started the day planting trees in what is to be a new bit of woodland. We have set out a circlular space to be a future woodland glade surrounded by crab apple trees. The smaller of people got engaged in planting and digging and investigating worms and very soon we had a newly planted tree circle.

The group went on to light a fire, collect a trolley full of wood for future fires, hang out in some dens and have a swing about in the hammocks and trees.

After school we saw some fantastic rainbows, sunsets and downpours. By the time we'd reached the woods after our walk, the head torches came into their own and we explored the woods in the developing darkness.

How fantastic to see bridge making by torchlight, candlelit snack time and hand washing in the dark. Another fantastic bit of exploring and enjoyment and November magic.
