This week we have been looking at using tools effectively and safely. On our welly walk we started to learn how to whittle. The first step in doing this didn't involve sticks, however, it involved carrots! The children were shown how to remove the outer skin of the carrot using peeler, in preparation for removing the bark from sticks. They are getting fairly proficient and should be able to help peel your veg at home soon! We will continue with whittling over the next few weeks and will move onto using sticks instead of carrots. We will also be observing what happens to the peelings if we leave them on the ground!
