Little Skippers, our group for 2-5 year olds and their families, has been meeting weekly since January. We have been exploring Windermere, its wildlife, the people that live around the lake, boat building and much more. Each week we have delved into these wonderful themes through story telling, music, craft and lots of imagination!
We have made new friends and have met some of the wonderful animals that live around the lake.
We have been having lots of fun on Thursday mornings, but the team behind Little Skippers have also been keeping track of what has worked well, and not so well, as part of these sessions. We have found that the mix of different activities available during each session has appealed to the learning styles of different children. Even the adults have been joining in which has made this a wonderful opportunity for families to learn together, whilst spending time together.
Although we are coming towards the end of our time with Little Skippers at Brockhole, this is not the end of the story. We will be taking what we have learnt and will be putting it to good use, working with early years groups in other settings from September onwards. The activities that you have been enjoying will also be used to inspire exciting events and activities for families to enjoy on a daily basis at Windermere Jetty.
The last two gatherings of Little Skippers will take place on the 9 and 16 July, at 10.30am at Brockhole. Thank you to everybody who has joined us over the last six months, it has been lovely getting to know you all. Keep your eyes peeled on our website to find out about upcoming events and activities.
