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…
Sorry to disappoint if you didn’t make it this time… Take a look at our Easter Dates and drop me a line if you’d like to come then instead for a dose of spring sunshine (fingers crossed very hard!)
Please note that if you are booked on the February date, we are issuing a weather warning: If the temperature for the day is predicted to be 5 degrees or less, we will have to shorten the session by an hour or more. The final decision will be made on Monday 16th February: all parties will be notified, and a discount applied if the session is shortened.
Do get in touch with any questions.
We are looking to expand our team of assistants, both paid and on a voluntary basis. If you have Forest School Training to Level 2 or 3, or are considering work in this sector and would like to offer your time as a volunteer, please do get in touch to discuss the options.
Another heart-warming quote from a happy mum and her marvellous son, who attended the rainiest day in the half-term holiday:
“I wanted to tell you again that T- adored his day with you. When I explained that some people had cancelled because of the weather, he replied ‘Well, they missed out on the best day of their lives!’ Thank you.”
Hello friends of the forest old and new…
We are currently planning ahead to next year, and are considering the following ideas, on which we would love to hear your thoughts. We would like to make Ironwood sessions as brilliant as possible, and also as accessible and inclusive as possible, so please get in touch to help us craft our ‘product’ to best suit you all.
- Amended times: Start at 9am, finish at 3.30pm (giving you an extra hour), for the same price of £30/day.
- Saturday club: perhaps for older children, e.g 9 – 15 year olds, perhaps twice a month 10.00-14.00, £20
- Wild Women of the Woods: Saturday woodland craft group for adults (e.g. basket weaving, cordage making, small woodwork projects, with campfire cooking) e.g. first saturday of the month 10am – 4pm.
Dates for Spring/Summer 2015 will be released soon, following any feedback we get. We are also scoping out interest for the February Half-Term holiday club, so let us know if you hope to attend then.
Looking forward to receiving your responses!
