Carol, the weather lady on BBC TV, told us this was going to be the coldest day of the year so far and most of Sparrow Hawks took her advice and wrapped up warm and all the adults did too! Mrs Farley had built up a roaring fire by the time everyone arrived and we started the session with some games to keep us warm. We learnt two new games this week. One was called pulse and the other was a team game called magic stick.
Then we sat down around the fire circle and Mrs Farley explained the choices of activities we had this week. One was using real knives to whittle some hazel sticks to make a butter knife which we could take home and try and spread butter on our toast in the morning. Burl said you could also use it to spread jam!
