The woods were a hive of activity today as all the children participated with enthusiasm, humour and energy. Lots of fun, new friendships made and old re-kindled. Hope to see you all again in May!
Well done today kids! You did an amazing job of working and playing together, some nice team work and happy making. Bird-sized and human-sized nests, blown and painted real eggs and hunting the chocolate ones, as well as foraged nettles and wild garlic to eat for lunch! Some of us thought it was yum!
Those pesky winds again! Sadly we have to cancel as winds are predicte to be between 26 and 46mph on Tuesday, making it unsafe to enter the woods with a group of youngsters.
If you are booked onto that date, please get in touch to discuss alternative arrangements.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Book now to avoid disappointment!
Spring is one of the most exciting times to be in the woods, with signs of bluebells just poking through now, trees about to transform and chattering birds building their nests. There will be lots to see and do, and I am most looking forward to a few chocolate egg-hunts in such a stunning location.
We can’t wait to see you all again at the woods! See the dates on the ‘2015 Dates’ or ‘Holiday Club’ pages, or get in touch with us directly to find out more.
A lovely group of girls today, on another stunning day in the wonderful Darwell wood, East Sussex. Three hours is just enough time to give a little ‘taster’ of what Forest School is. The girls seemed to be very content making, playing, cooking, climbing and eating and produced some delightful pixies and toadstools. I think we all wished there was a bit longer to play after all the business of the activities! Hope to see you all again at Easter Ironwood Forest School!
The woods were a winter wonderland today as the sunshine shone gloriously through the trees and the children made new friends and invented games independently. I’m very proud of all the newcomers for their fearless approach to everything and hope to see them all again at Easter! I’m already egg-cited about egg hunts…
