Who are the VYFWBP?

We are a friendly community group, run by parents, who meet every Thursday morning in West Bank Park, York. Whatever the weather, school hols included, we spend a couple of hours in the woods and meadows of the Park, doing nature games and crafts, building or making things with materials we find, telling stories and singing songs.

We are open to all - with a contribution of £1 a family (to cover basic equipment) - so if you want to join us, see you on Thursday at 10am at the statue of Queen Victoria, at the top of the Rose Walk. (Bring something simple to share at snack time.)

Dinosaur Trail, 24 July 2008

This week West Bank Park had some prehistoric visitors. They went into the woods, laid eggs, but forgot where! Luckily the Very Young Friends of West Bank Park were on hand to help. We all followed giant dinosaur footprints into the woods and collected eight different coloured eggs. The children (and adults!) enjoyed following the trail, searching the undergrowth when they saw a picture of a dinosaur, looking for the different colours and counting the eggs they collected. The dinosaurs were very grateful and rewarded us all with a certificate and cake. We await news of any hatchings!

After our snack we were full of energy and Rosemary taught us a French song with actions, 'Savez-vous planter les choux?' (Do you know how to plant cabbage?) and much fun was had trying to plant them with our hands, feet, nose and elbows!

We sometimes bow to her before we set off into the woods!
