Copsegrove Farm

Our second visit to Copsegrove Farm focussed on the trees in the woods. We spent time learning how to identify different trees from their leaves. We aged trees by measuring the girth of the tree using our hands and tape measures. We made leaf and berry prints on material using a pressing technique with stones. We learnt how to filter water using a tripod and various filtering materials such as sand and charcoal. We also did the walk of trust where we had to guide each other round the woods in pairs with one of us blindfolded. As always we had great fun and learnt lots of new things including how to make popcorn over an open fire!
