Sussex Wildlife Trust is opening a new group for children interested in nature at Seven Sisters Country Park near Seaford on Saturday mornings.
Wildlife Watch is aimed at youngsters aged between 5 – 11 years old and is based on Forest School principals, providing a wonderful opportunity for youngsters to experience and learn from nature. They will be encouraged to tackle hands-on outdoor activities, work as a team, develop social skills which will boost their confidence as they gain a sense of achievement. Sessions are themed around the changing seasons and finding out how to help wildlife thrive.
The two hour sessions (10.30am – 12.30pm) are booked in groups of four with availability from September. Dates are Saturdays September 9, October 14, November 11 and December 9.To book all four sessions costs a total of £36 a child with a discounted rate for members of the Sussex Wildlife Trust.
Nikki Hills, Wildlife Watch leader at Seven Sisters said, ‘We’ll be exploring lots of different habitats looking for wildlife, den building and campfire cooking with time for wild play in the woods. We limit our sessions to a maximum of 15 children so book early to avoid disappointment.’
