Over the last two weeks of Easter holidays GEP has opened up its doors and ran three holiday club sessions. We have been joined by a mix of familiar faces and some new faces from an array of different local villages for a morning of fun up in the forest. Luckily the weather was kind and allowed us to be outside for all three sessions, providing all of the children a chance to enjoy some quality time at our forest school site, making new friends and memories whilst getting pretty muddy!
On the first morning the sunshine shone and the children got creative building dens and painting rocks. Our tree train was ridden and wands were made out of sticks and natural materials.
After the Easter weekend we held our second morning, joined by a slightly smaller but equally as enthusiastic group as the previous week. It was clay morning and everyone really enjoyed making clay ‘boggles’ and other creatures around the site.
Our third and final session was ‘minibeast day’. As a team we conducted a successful minibeast hunt, finding snails, caterpillars, centipede and spiders. This inspired the children to build their very own bug hotel for all of their new friends to stay in. Afterwards the animal care continued as we made bird feeders to take home.
We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who joined us, we will be confirming dates for Summer holiday club very shortly so stay tuned!
