This morning we were up again at just after 6.15am, and out on the farm to look after the animals. Each group changed round and looked after the animals that they haven’t met yet. After our hard work with the cows, sheep pigs and poultry, we had a wonderful breakfast. Today’s second breakfast course was yummy pancakes with golden syrup.
The weather has been a mixture of rain and sunshine, and some of us were lucky enough to see a full size rainbow:
Group two made the most amazing apple crumble that we enjoyed after lunch and we had a scrumptious lamb roast dinner. Nethercott food is soo good.
Group three spent all afternoon in the Spinney. The Spinney is extremely popular with us, its a bit like Forest School. We make and build anything that we want from the natural surroundings and sit together round the camp fire.
As we write, group one are making and tasting infusions: mint tea, lemon balm tea, mint and chamomile tea and lemon and ginger tea. We are bringing home bookmarks that explain the benefits of each tea.
