Today we teamed up with Richard Herbert from Phoenix Martial Arts to hold the first of 4 'Kung Fu Pandas' sessions that we're running over the summer break. We mixed eco-chat about the importance of re-use, and reduction alongside recycling, with expert Martial Arts tuition - learning how to use our 'Bo' staffs for Black belt form number 6. We also gave a quick refresher on the difference between Swifts, Swallows and House Martins - how's that for variety all squeezed into an hour and a half session. The children had ice cream to cool off at the end, and instead of throwing our tubs away we filled them with some soil and planted runner beans which we look forward to watching grow in the coming weeks.
The random appearance of a Gorilla was not dwelled upon!
