My favourite part of this week was creating the stone stacks! Stone stacks are used to guide walkers or to indicate that it is a special place. The wherry has been special to use during our time at wilderness school, as it is where we have our campfires (especially if we get marshmallows). We each built a stone stack using a variety of stones. They were difficult to balance, but great fun.

Today at wilderness school we made rectangles using nails, string and metre sticks. We had to make rectangles with a perimeter of eight metres. It was harder than expected because it was difficult to ensure the lines were straight.

In small groups we looked at different places around the lighthouse and measured the perimeter and the area. We measured the park, vegetable garden and fog horn. To make measuring easier we used trundle wheels.

With Mrs Potter on the afternoon we made kites. We used canes and plastic to make them. They were tricky to make! After we had made them we were allowed to decorate them and make a tail! We them took them home to fly over the weekend. It was great fun!
