- 2014 Consultation
- Groups and Meetings
Drama workshops by Kids In Control, for ages 10-14, developing a project for perfomance at the Lyric Theatre in March.
Families from HEdNI will be briefing the Education Committee on the Draft Policy. The evidence will be videoed and should be available on the Assembly website in due course, we will post a link when we have it available.
The session is open to the public, for anyone who wishes to observe- there will be no opportunity for audience participation however
An Creagan where the sun always shines, probably. Weather permitting (and we aren't too fussy!) we will be meeting in January. We will play, explore, dig and climb as usual - and we will also have the opportunity to work with living willow. All welcome, no charge - but its helpful to know who is going to come so get in touch.
KIC will offer a series of exciting workshops for 11-14 year old home educated children in November, possibly leading to a performance at the Lyric Theatre in early March.
Please contact us if you would like your child to attend.
The dusty bottomed children will reconvene in the Wild Woods where the sun always shines... so far! Fun, learning and lots of nature. Bring food (or use the cafe) and full wet weather gear, an umbrella may be a good idea too. We will go ahead in all weathers.
There will be some sort of suitable seasonal activity, possibly tree-seed preparation, available.
Meet us for food and film on Tuesday. We will confirm venue, time and film based on the preferences of those who express an interest, but Shaun The Sheep is out in August and is a front runner. We will spend the morning beforehand making stop-motion animations of our own, feel free to join us!

School is back and the museums are empty again. A relaxed trip to W5 in Belfast to celebrate. We will arrive at 10:30 for a 11am workshop on Light, eat a lunch in the cafe (you can bring a picnic) and go on to explore the exhibition.
We will be benefiting from group/educational rates so payment in advance is essential to secure a place.
"W5 has over 250 interactive exhibits which cover many curriculum areas such as science, technology, art & design, geography, mathematics, ICT and english. They are organised into four main exhibition areas DISCOVERY (for under 8's only), GO, SEE/DO (8 Years +). The exhibits are designed to develop children's understanding and encourage thinking and problem solving skills. We also have a new exhibit “Climbit” Climbit is a unique, visually elegant, three dimensional sculpture specially designed for climbing. Oval platforms let children traverse over and under and through an amazing structure. Details of the exhibits in the different areas and links to the curriculum can be found on our website."
Five times in An Creagan, and it just gets better. As part of the Not Back To School Celebrations we will be having autumnal fun in the Wild Woods. There will be marshmallows to toast, the normal chaos and mess to create and plenty of opportunity to learn and play together.
We will go ahead in all weathers, bring appropriate gear and something to change into for the way home.
