Kites, animals, dens and lots of mud!
Five days of wildness at our February half-term club! We were fully booked every day, and we loved meeting lots of new faces who all put their wellies on and got stuck in. We loved seeing the children grow in confidence and try new things.
On Monday the group explored our community garden and played wide games, they learnt how to make bird-houses and then in the afternoon they went to Tom’s Farm to help muck out the animals, cuddle some guinea pigs and see some snakes.
Tuesday saw the group travel to Growhampton at the University of Roehampton and learn all about how important bees are to our environment. They then made bees-wax candles and natural re-usable cling-film. Our thanks to Growhampton for hosting us again.
On Wednesday the group made kits and catapults out of things they could find; and they loved testing them on tin-cans for target practice. The best part of our week was using mud to camouflage our faces and play a big games of 40/40!
Thursday was a trip to one of our favourite places, Wimbledon Common where they children used compasses for navigation and made dens.
Finally on Friday, the group learnt how to whittle, told stories of their weeks and celebrated a week of wildness with a feast and ceremony with parents and friends.
Well done everyone for a wild week, and looking forward to our May club already!
