Games and planning (2012-09-10)

We started with News and introductions, lots of new faces: Isaac, Izzy, Anna, Kathi (and Eva) and Connie and goodbye to May, Ellie and Ilona.

We decided to play games first: Octopus and Dead ants.

We divided into three groups to think of themes for the term and activities within those themes.

We then returned to the circle and each group presented its ideas whilst the others said what they liked about them.

We voted nine to eighteen in favour of Autumn over wildlife, but will compromise with sessions on wildlife in Autumn.

A selection of the ideas from all groups:

  1. Autumn cooking
  2. Wildlife in Autumn
  3. Making Weapons
  4. Making leaf pictures and collages
  5. Autumn lights, lanterns and tree decorations
  6. Autumn walk
  7. Bats
  8. Shadow puppets
  9. Papier maché

In addition we will need to fit in MerryMoot and Green Fair Making. The resulting term plan and Google calendar are now on the blog: (look right).

We had time for one last game of Linked Disease.

We ended with the circle song.

Leaders: Tegan, Debbie, Tim
Helpers: Ellen, Eva, Lisbet
Elfs: 19
Woodchips: 3
Pioneer: 1
