October 2021 - Autumn Activities  

We walked through Greyfriars Woods to learn about the variety of plants and wildlife to be found in Dunwich in autumn. We collected leaves, seeds, feathers and chestnuts to make wreaths and other crafts. We also spotted a variety of fungi growing. Thinking about harvest time, we were shown some antique farming tools such as scythes, sickles, pitch forks and seed drills, and had a go at using them ourselves!
