Waiting list for September 2012

Elfins are our younger age group at Bradley Stoke and are aged 6 - 9 years old. Providing places are available children are able to join the group at the start of the term when their sixth birthday falls.

However places are filling fast, if you have a child of elfin age, or who will be six during the next school year and is interested in joining the group please contact us about joining the waiting list.

Pioneers are our older age group, 10 - 12 years old. We have only recently started running Pioneers at Bradley Stoke and so still have spaces in this group. If you have an older child who is interested in joining please get in touch.

If you would like more information please contact Jenny and Daniel on 0117 9093969

Summer plans

Hooray, the weather has been great for playing outdoors, time for those big games that just don't fit inside. This week we were out on the field playing touch blue, a game involving finding items of a certain colour. IT was impressive to see just how many things the children found in what a first sight looked a very bare field.

Indoors the pioneers have started making leather pouches. Last week they worked out their designs and made templates, this week they have started cutting them out. There will be a lot of work going into these, finshing with a handmade wooden button.

The Elfins have been making underwater mobiles, last week we used tissue paper and glue to decorate sheets of card ready for making our underwater creatures. We should have been cutting them out this week, but I forgot to bring the decorated card so we extended our game session instead. Still the games were fun, and next week we'll get back to the mobiles.
