Music and creativity

Explore and celebrate nature and the changing seasons, through music, creativity and imagination! With local activity provider 'Playful Nature'.

Seasonal workshops

Autumn carnival - KS1/2

We explore Brockhole for signs of Autumn, as the inspiration to create a colourful carnival procession with music and costume. A fun, creative and multisensory celebration of the changing seasons!

Festive celebration – KS1/2

The natural world, our imagination and creativity, are the main ingredients for this unusual festive celebration! We reflect on our personal achievements for the year, get into the spirit of gift giving, and sing some carols in the woods.

Journey to Lapland - nursery to KS1

Santa has gone on strike, but the elves don’t know why! A worried elf takes the children on an imaginary journey to Lapland to investigate.

A theatrical music workshop and Christmas decoration making take place indoors, before following a ‘tinsel trail’ to decorate the trees in the woods.

Year round sessions

Going on a bear hunt - nursery to KS1

This popular rhyme leads us into a mini adventure to hunt for bears and explore nature, using all of our senses and a sense of fun! Will we find the bears? What else will we discover along the way? The bear hunt is rounded off with some song and dance!

Rhythms of Nature – KS2

Nature is bursting with music and rhythm! We explore the sounds we find in the great outdoors, to inspire our own music making, using nothing but found objects, and our own bodies.

Prices

£100 per half day session and two for £175.
