Nature Ninjas!

Calling all primary school aged ‘Nature Ninjas’ aged 4-9 (ish). Do you love the outdoors and exploring?  Are you nutty about nature? Think mud is marvellous?

The Young Friends of Rowntree Park’s new after-school club starts after Easter and runs every Thursday from 4-5pm. Activities and adventures to engage and excite that will include a mix of science, engineering, art and crafts and much more!  A focus on the natural world around us and the local community, teamwork, problem-solving and most importantly, lots of fun!  We will also be making use of our new clubhouse located under the cafe!

There is a limit of 10 places available for the ‘Nature Ninjas’ and we aim to meet weekly from after Easter up until May half term initially.  The dates are: 12th April, 19th April, 26th April, 3rd May, 10th May, 17th May, 24th May.

Each session is only £2 per child for Friends of Rowntree Park (a total of £14 for the half- term).

If you aren’t already a Friend of Rowntree Park, the sessions are £3 each, but it’s cheaper to join the Friends for £5 a year per household and then pay the members rate (a total of £19 rather than £21).  You can join here.

Parents/carers will need to be around during the sessions.  The Woodland Club will be lead by Christine (who has run the Very Young Friends sessions for a number of years, as well as many other groups/sessions for children) and Abigail, who organises events for the Young Friends and has 16 years teaching experience.

Example activities may include- den building, survival skills, willow weaving, nature art, scavenger hunts, gardening, making pulleys and zip wires, recycled boat racing, bug hotel making, making music in nature and so much more!
