After learning how to use fire steels last week-the children made the next step into learning the usefulness of fire.
They began by taking fresh, uncooked bread-dough and making it into a sausage shape. Then they wound the sausage around the end of a hazel rod. The end of the rod had been stripped of bark to make it safe for cooking food.

Moving is usually a time of chaos but Mrs. Prout even manages to make that a beautiful affair!
She has carefully re-potted each and everything ready to be planted in their new homes.
We are very lucky to have a hardworking and green fingered gardener, and we know that the harvest in September will be as abundant as ever in her green-fingered hands!
The weather has been a bit confused this Spring, but the plants and flowers seem to have responded despite the cold North wind and heavy rain falls, with a little help from Mrs. Prout.
