Tuesday 14th May Spring walk to Gledhow Valley Woods.
We will be going to Gledhow Valley Woods and will be exploring the trees, bushes and looking for minibeasts.
Children who do not usually attend on that day are welcome to come with us, either meeting at playgroup and walking there or meeting us in Gledhow Valley Woods at the junction with Gledhow Lane. We will leave Playgroup about half past nine and come back to playgroup for 11.45. Parents can go home from the woods with their children if they wish.
The walk back up the hill to playgroup can be quite challenging for some children. In the past, some parents have planned to drive to the woods, park on Gledhow Lane and then meet us for the walk in the woods only. Please let Debbie know if this is what you plan to do
We will take some water and biscuits for a snack in the woods. Please dress your child appropriately for the weather and in old clothes and wellies. Long trousers and long sleeves are also a good idea to protect against nettles and brambles
We will be bringing some magnifiers and pots for looking for minibeasts but if you have any at home, maybe you could bring them too.
