Thank you for all your kind donations of pumpkins and squashes. Most of the children enjoyed investigating the texture and smell of the pumpkins and some even enjoyed tasting them. They were surprised by how much they liked eating them, with some children consuming nearly an entire pumpkin! Look out for the requests for pumpkin soup.
What a fantastic trip to Celtic Harmony for a Stone Age Experience! When we arrived at the encampment we divided into three tribes , Bears , Eagles and Boars agreeing to come in peace and learn from the tribe. Our day started in the roundhouse where we were shown how to make fire , thought creating friction by rubbing two sticks together and generating an ember. We were amazed when a few minutes later there was a great fire! We then went off to make our own shelters , hunt for food , gather, cook and make tools. The children were able to experience an authentic environment and were clearly enjoying the learning opportunities. We appreciate everyone's contribution to making this such an amazing trip.
