The children found a large tree branch in the entrance to the woods today, they noted that it must have fallen in the winds we have been having this week. Then they all used their communication skills to talk to each other, I overheard “Can someone help us at the front it’s too heavy on my own” ; “Watch out for the branches they could get you in the eyes”.
 

The children then walked the tree branch down to base camp. On the way they named the branch a “Chinese Tree Dragon”. When they arrived at base camp they attached rope to the branch and decorated it, they dug for clay and moulded a head, they searched the ground for natural objects to use as eyes. They were totally absorbed and engaged in this activity for the session.
