We are now getting into the flow of our school visits to Westonbirt Arboretum for toddlers and young children re Early Years / EYFS / Reception Classes and we are having a great time playing and learning in the beautiful surroundings. The autumnal fiery colours of yellows, oranges and reds are beginning to show which is lovely. A magical and impressive time of the year.
A busy period with lots of kids birthday parties in the woods. Parties for toddlers, young children through to teenagers and adults. Greta to see so many boys and girls letting their hair down and enjoying the freedom of real fun. Some mud, but not loads, in fact a perfect balance of muddy fun without getting drenched...just in time for the Autumn and Winter!! Our water fights are finally coming to an end for this year. Bookings have gone crazy and now only a couple of birthday party sessions available before Christmas.
We really enjoyed seeing so many fabulous children throughout the summer at our summer holiday club / summer day camp.
Lots of memories of running, playing, water fights, zip wires, climbing, balancing, mud, rain, sunshine, farm animals, camp fires, dens, shelters, bashas, survival, hiking, exploring, adventuring, pottery, creativity and more and more...
Now looking forward to our October holiday club... :-)
