This is a light and refreshing look at some of the natural areas of the site. Using a combination of the senses and imagination pupils are encouraged to look afresh at familiar objects. Ideal for preparing a sense of place, or for reinforcing a lasting sense of the site's natural beauty.
We may create a story or a poem, collect the scents of nature in the herb garden and make fantastic potions to share or make twig and wool God’s Eyes. There are plenty of creative options that can be tailored to suit the other activities chosen, making temporary sculptures in the woods, making tree spirits or working in teams on the scrap art challenge.
