This summer we programmed a series of free ‘Summer Fun Sessions’ for families and carers of children aged 0-11yrs, living in the local area. The programmed of activity expanded Friday Stay & Plays sessions for early years that is currently delivered by Central Bristol Children's Centre (CBCC) and Lawrence Hill Health Visiting Team. Across five weeks over 600 children came along to the sessions that ran weekly throughout the holidays.

‘There was a nice mix of activities and the children enjoyed getting messy with the mud and sticking feathers and leaves to their pictures. It was nice to see the children smelling the mint and rosemary as they are pressing flowers onto the bunting’ Feedback, Forest School team

During the sessions CBCC staff facilitated play activities for early years, including singing, mark making and craft activities and also  provided family support and health advise.

Connecting with our wider programme of creative activity we invited musical-theatre company Tidal Tales Collective to perform their show 'The Hare the Moon and the River'. This show used puppetry and songs to explore environmental issues in a fun and playful way.

Our forest school team were on hand hosting nature play activities from mud-art, nature trails to crown making. We also invited dancers and drummers who hosted fun activities for children (and their grown ups!).

There are more activities for primary aged children running during term time, including After School clubs, click here to find out more.
