Where Do I Go? 

Working in small teams, this is a fun and energetic orienteering challenge. A short briefing by our Ranger and its ready steady go! Using their Conkers maps, the children go in search of letters located around our woodland trails. Once all the letters have been found it’s a race to unscramble the letters and find the secret word.

Mud Monsters 

A basic introduction to food-chains, this sensory interactive session encourages the children to discover who eats who?

The session ends with the children making a mud creature using mud and woodland materials. Old clothes recommended!
