We worked with the children and families and educators at Histon Early Years Centre in spring and early summer 2019. This reconnected a relationship begun in 2011 which led to one of our most popular resources - 37 Shadows. Artist Hilary Cox Condron lead the project, exploring the spaces for fantastical adventures with this community and creating this wonderful map above of Homefield Park as a result. The map was shared at the Histon 2019 Feast events as well as with all the families at the Centre. Copies were also given to new families registering for autumn 2019 to welcome them.
We love visiting these woods. It is important for the children in many ways - we see their confidence grow as they take risks, try things out, ask questions and put forward their own ideas whilst working as part of a group. They gained so much from working with CCI on this project and we are really excited to share our new map. Karen, Head of Histon Early Years Centre
Updates from the workshops are shared below.
We also worked with the Histon and Impington Sustainability Group on their celebration of their green spaces for Mental Health Week and contributed to their celebration day on May 11th.
Our green spaces are priceless living playgrounds where children can explore, play and feel the elements. HiSustainability
