Farm animals, Playgrounds and Tunnels

Stick Men, Old Mills and Canal Barges

On Thursday, Forest Craft resumed with Mrs McManus and Mrs Ward leading the children in the recently revived pond area by the infant playground.

On Friday, Class 4 set off the explore the local area, visiting first Masson Mills, and then climbing aboard Birdswood on Cromford Canal. Over the c
