MOULSECOOMB PRIMARY HERITAGE AND ENVIRONMENT FESTIVAL
Over eight hundred children from different schools across the city came to the sixth Heritage and Environment Festival at Moulsecoomb Primary School. Pupils got to do everything from making WWII potato pancakes from ration book recipes (made a lot more edible with a dollop of jam from the schools cherry plum trees), brass rubbing, bug hunting, weaving, archaeological digs, fire making, neolithic hut reconstruction, wattling, carving, sheep herding and dressing up as a Lewes Priory monk. There was also a session attended by over 150 teachers and school staff about how to include outdoor learning into the curriculum. We took pupils from the Swan Centre to have a look around the festival before they came to the forest garden for a bit of bush craft and pizza making.
