What do we do?

The sessions

Our Fledgling sessions begin with the children making a circle and welcoming each other in song.

More often than not, we introduce a small box into the circle containing a hint to the session's theme. We love to fill our box with found things, whether that be a beautiful Jay feather or a Roe Deer skull. The children enjoy passing the treasure to each other to explore its 'thingness' - it's smell, it's texture. Our Fledglings sessions flow from this into a celebration of the theme through songs, poetry, stories and art-making.

“Fledglings is such a brilliant group. My 3 year old daughter loved making art using different materials whilst learning about natures delights, such as spiders, wasps, wind & berries. A stand out memory will be the laughter using the conker runs!”

Songs

We have found that songs about nature are few and far between! Our solution has been to write our own, borrowing familiar tunes. We love writing them and the children love learning them!  A firm favourite among our Fledglings is, 'here we go round the meadowlands', to the tune of 'here we go round the Mulberry bush'. Singing together each week brings such joy; we at Trymwood Studios are convinced singing is a form of magic!

Poetry and stories

We pack our Fledglings sessions with glorious nature poetry and stories.

 

We love to discover new material, as well as introduce the children to the classics of our own literature-rich childhoods. Shirley Hughes, Eric Carle and the wonderful poetry of A. N. Milne make regular appearances!

 

If we can read and sing outside, we make sure we do!
