Tin Can Cooking (2013-06-24)

We played Octopus whilst people arrived and more can stoves were made. Tessa helped cut up the food into small enough pieces to be cooked on cocktail sticks.

We held a Circle in which we decided that the best way to distribute biscuits, in the absence of News, was for every one to say their name, an animal that they liked and a colour they liked before taking a biscuit and passing them on. We had green ferrets, red tigers and turquoise sloths, to name a few.

Tim explained the procedure should anyone burn themselves: get up and run to the water bucket, put burn in water and then scream.

We divided into groups of up to four with a tin stove per group.

We cooked peppers, cheese, bread, peas, baby sweet corn and parsnip.

We had time to sing We are the Woodcraft Folk and A mighty Song of Peace before singing our Closing Circle Song.

Parachute Games (2013-06-17)

We played a game of Octopus whilst people arrived.

We went outside and held our Circle News in the Willow Dome.

Kobe has hurt squashed his thumb, which has had yellow goo coming from it. Leto was whipped hard with a rope. Magnus found the froghopper in some cuckoo's spit. Xanthe has been to Gifford Circus, Flora and Connie will go. Millie-Maye's frog died. Jo lost a tooth today. Louie saw two dead chicks. Jago won his football match by saving the penalty goal. Ivo bashed his chin and Jay is going to his Nan's.

We decided to play the parachute game Shark Attack, however this needs to be played indoors, so first we played classic Mushrooms and then a name game where we said our name and the name of a person to whom the group should move the ball on the parachute.

We went inside and played shark attack.

We just had time for a quick song: Bumble Bee.

Junk Modelling (2013-06-10)

We played a quick game whilst people arrived.

We had a new person in the group: Michael so we all gave our names.

Tim had had a request that we went straight into the activities so suggested that we only have News every other meeting; alternating with singing. This was met with some dismay. However we pushed ahead, as we had a lot of modelling to do.

Zoe was a helper and took extra photos:

We modelled.
