Oak class children (those age 10-12 years) are spending a week immersing themselves in the woodwork curriculum, starting by spending three days in a privately owned woodland south of Norwich. Today the children, in groups of six had to select a tree of suitable wood, straight and long enough to be able to cut into sections, as each child is going to make their own mallet. The trees used were cherry and hazel. The children then shared the task of sawing down their tree and cutting it into lengths ready for the next stage. It was a beautiful day with dappled sunlight among the newly leafing trees. Some of the children are pictured here cutting their tree trunk into lengths.
