Wee Folk Woods Makeover
About a month ago we finished our clay door project with our
big buddies and the doors were mounted on trees in the woods
behind our school.
We created a poem and poster to invite the rest of the school to go
for a walk and enjoy the doors. They did and came back and told us
about the fun they had.
Unfortunately the doors haven’t survived. Most of them have been
So yesterday we created new doors, a new way.
We went back to using wood, decorating them with nails
The buddies worked together to hammer the nails into the wood
in a variety of patterns then they tied the string around the nails.
This project strengthened the relationships that have been growing
between our youngest and oldest students. Their patience, trust and
pleasure of working together was shown in many ways.
Most of the doors will go into the Wee Folk Woods but a few will be
new doors for Fairy Lane.
