Mission Muddisdale Award Part 2

At Muddisdale we started by trying to start a fire to make dough twists but it didn’t get hot enough to cook the dough. Then we started collecting flowers and leaves to press them. After that we did the web game, we splitted our group into boys and girls and made two different webs. The webs were like giant spider webs made out of wool. The aim of the game was to get through the web without touching it but you needed your team to help you through the web. After we split into pairs or some people worked by their self we made rafts for Mini beasts. After we made them we got to sail them in the river, they all floated. After that we looked at our pitfall trap but unfortunately our one had been turned upside-down so we had no bugs in it. By MMM    

On the 9th of May 2016 our class went up to Muddisdale. We had our own peedie groups there was mission marvellous Muddisdale, Muddisdale all stars and us the Nature Agents. Our first activity was making a perfume we were split up into three groups. The perfumes were named messy mud (very muddy), wild watermelon 0% watermelon and Fresh (no mud or watermelon). After we did our perfume we had snack and put hand gel on our hands (and a little bit in our perfume). Then we made a den for minibeasts we made it out of sticks and leaves. Jennifer Sofia and Morwena found a tree with a face on it. Then we made a nature park in a tray we got a tray and a few sticks, leaves and mud we laid it out like a little garden. Finally we made a sundial and compass we knew our north south east and west so we knew what we were doing. Then when we were finished we had to leave no trace so we all tidied up but then Angus forgot his hat way up at the top of Muddisdale so he ran up to get it and ran back down. Then we all walked back to school. By the nature agents. Ryan Angus Declan Cameron Bruce Finlay Sofia and Jennifer.

As soon as we got to Muddisdale we set our base up. The first activity was the web game. We got the wool from our helper and found two trees to tie the web on to. We climbed through the web a few times. Then we did the pressing flowers activity we found some plants and we put them in the folder.We made dough twists and cooked them on the fire and eat them. We made dens for mini beasts and we did this in partners they were mostly made of sticks and grass.  We checked the pit fall traps. There were lots of insects in them! By the Muddisdale all stars!
