Where the Wild Things Are1 day

We will spend the day outdoors in our wonderful woodland bringing this classic book by Maurice Sendak to life. We will make 'wild things' from clay and create our own musical rumpus. As we recreate scenes from the book the children will use their imagination, creative skills and problem solving to play freely and engage with the resources.

A Mixture of MinibeastsOne day

Our site has a wonderful range of habitats where many mini beasts can be found. With pond dipping activities we will take a very close look at what lives in and around water. We will explore our woodland and meadow environments to compare the differences that we find. Using age appropriate classification keys and equipment we will identify different living things we find along the way and see how animals are grouped and sorted. This is a hands on day which can be adapted.

Available from March to October
