Fun in the woods and Neolithic living history.
Helping construct a Neolithic longhouse and other activities: wattle and daub, clay pots, cooking, bows and arrows etc.
Bring wood and marshmallows or something to cook on the fire (and cooking gear!) if you can, bring a picnic, wet weather gear and a change of clothes, an outdoor activity if you like and most definitely a relaxed attitude to mud!
Always a wonderful day in good company.
We're doing a very hands on chocolate workshop with lots of lovely treats to take away with us. For those of you with daily intolerances, they've asked you to bring along some dairy free chocolate and you will be able to participate in everything the rest of us are doing. There will be a quiz, a trip into the chocolate factory and lots of opportunity to chat to our host - Mr Willy Wonka! The whole workshop will take about an hour and a half.
Adults do not pay to accompany children and under twos are very welcome to come along and dabble in the chocolate too.
Booking is essential, we can put you in touch with the organisers. The trip is to tie in with reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Recommended age around 8-14 years. Swallows and Amazon themed activities at organiser's house in Bangor.
Bring something for lunch if you would like to stay but please no meat/fish as we are a veggie/vegan household.
Our Christmas co-op will be a mix between Christmas crafts and Christmas party. We will have party games, carol singing and lots of crafts to try. This is always a popular one and a great chance to meet other home educators or catch up.
Please could each family organise a craft to bring as well as a contribution to the party food. Vegetarian food only please!
The cost is £5 per family if you pay between now and Wednesday 7th December.
From Thursday 8th to Monday 12th December the cost is £6 per family or £7 cash on the day.

HEdNI DRAMA PROGRAMME

We look forward to seeing some new faces and are particularly keen to meet some new teens!
Start Date: Monday 25th April, 11am to 12pm weekly until end of June with a display for friends and family.
To facilitate all interested young people at the appropriate level, make it easier for parents, and for health and safety reasons, there will be two drama projects that run at the same time in the same venue. Please note that these are creative learning workshop programmes that build incrementally and are not individual classes.
Places are limited and priority will go to those who completed the first NSKA programme and their siblings. The age bands are important in order to be able to produce programmes that are safe, focused, enjoyable and beneficial to all participants.
Drama Programme for young people aged 10+
(young people who took part in the first project and who will be ten before September may choose to remain in this group).
Drama programme for children aged 4 to 9
(siblings of young people in the older group will be prioritized).
This group is limited to 12 maximum and will be musical theatre based.
Both groups will have the opportunity to socialize after the workshops and bring a packed lunch to eat together in the communal area.
There will be a small charge of £2 per week per child this is to contribute towards heating costs, insurance and workshop materials.
(should this be problematic please private mail me, the charge should not prohibit participation).
We will be learning all about German language, culture, history and geography at this co-op.
We will create a large map of Germany, learn some German language and tongue twisters and sing songs. We will also learn about German history and culture.
Please bring German food for a shared lunch (vegetarian only please).
Please prepare an activity to bring along, but please do ask if you are stuck for ideas.
Payment in advance through paypal. Cost is £5 until Thursday, £6 after that or £7 on the day.
