Outdoor Education at KingsWellies

01st May 2016

Scott and his gang of trusty helpers (including Rumpole and Ziggy) have been VERY busy improving our outdoor play area. We now have a HUGE stock of mud for our mud kitchen, a stage to sing, dance and perform on, KingsWellies Castle to play in, obstacle courses to test our agility, dens to build and a whole range of loose materials to construct with. We even managed to make a bus out of Asda crates and old steering wheels!

Coffee Date for Parents to Meet

I have been approached by a couple of parents who are new to the area and are keen to meet up with other parents. I am more than happy to coordinate a little coffee date over at the hotel if people are interested. Please let me know. We can never have too many friends!

Meet our chickens!

30th March 2016

Alec Cocker (owner of Cockers Roses) and Finlay's Dad has very kindly provided us with a chicken coup and three chickens from his farm. We have one (very loud) cockerel and two chickens. These are Barbu D'Anver Bantams which are one of the smallest breeds of chicken and very friendly and easy to look after. Leanne (Finlay's mum) is also incubating some eggs for us so that hopefully we will be able to rear our own chicks. Very exciting!
