These sessions will be child-led and relaxed making it suitable for all ages and abilities.
Snack will be provided.
Children will receive a certificates for the skills they learned to acknowledge their achievements.
Every child will be given a nature jotter in which they can draw, write, use it as a nature scrapbook or use it in whichever way they want to express their nature experiences.
