Each person got a block of cedar wood and they were invited to carve an animal or plant onto it. I chose to use cedar as it is durable outdoors, easier than some other softwoods to carve and it was available!
The school has recently begun work on an art/nature trail through some trees on one side of the grounds. While I was carving with year 6 pupils, Nick from Olas art was making colourful signs with other students, to be put up elsewhere on the trail.

A great way to spend a sunny afternoon!
