Campfire and Popcorn (2104-11-03)

In preparation for the Campfire we collected twigs from the Warneford Meadow.

A few of us started the campfire early to get it ready for cooking whilst the rest of us held our News Circle: Isis went to her Grandma's house; Daniel went to Keyhaven and saw a tree house; Freya had her birthday on Friday and party on Saturday; Izzy went to Freya's party; Emily drove to Freya's party; Natty and Imogen stroked a crocodile at the crocodile park; Polly went to her Grandma's birthday party where there were two cakes; Morrigan went to France to see her Grandma and went to a zip wire park; Oliver is in the Ice Hockey team and is practicing on Sunday and Thursday; John's brother, dad and granddad have had their birthdays this week and he saw his two month old cousin; Theo has lost a tooth; Jay was eight yesterday and got an ant hexbug as a present; Ranan also drove to Lena's party; Rayan made loom bands at a friends house yesterday; Yasmine got a crystal at the museum; Ayoub has had an eye test, been to the dentist and the museum; Rafiq went to Kique's house for a sleep-over and hurt his lip on the way to the session; Joe went to his great uncle Aubrey's house in Norfolk; Ivo found a stud popper in his pocket; Tim bought a google watch for his birthday and picked wild mushrooms in the park this morning.

We explained the rules for lighted sparklers and what to do if there was an accident and then went outside to light them.

We cooked popcorn using two methods: mostly in a wok with a lid, in a little sunflower oil, but also in a clever wire cage.

We went back inside, as it was quite cold, and sang from some song sheets Emily had printed out.

We sang We are the Woodcraft Folk, Dorcas, The Worm Song, Blue Lake and Rocky Shore and Mornington Ride and a couple of rounds.

We were in fine voice for our Closing Circle.

Leaders: Emily, Rana, Debbie, Tim
Helpers: Yasmine, Chimena

Woodchips: 1
