2nd Saturday of the month - 9 March, 6 April (1st Saturday), 11 May and 8 June 2019 (4 sessions) - with Tamara
10.30am – 12.30pm.
Wildlife Watch is for 5-11 year olds with accompanying adults.
Bring your children along to help them explore the natural world. This will involve getting to know the forest school site, exploring the farm’s habitats and of course more fire and bush craft activities!
Wildlife Watch clubs are based on Forest School principles, providing a wonderful opportunity for children aged 5-11 to experience and learn from nature. They will be encouraged to tackle hands-on outdoor activities, work co-operatively with others, and have an opportunity to gain a sense of achievement while developing social skills and boosting confidence. Sessions are themed around the changing seasons and discovering how to help local wildlife thrive.
The vehicle access gate for the track to Chesworth Farm site will be open between 10:05 and 10:20 before the session, and between 12:40 and 12:55 afterwards. Pedestrian access only is available before and after these times. Access to Chesworth Farm track is from Queensway / Chesworth Lane T junction.
Limited parking at Chesworth Farm site: overflow parking in Chesworth Lane, which is a 10 minute walk along a pleasant off-road track to the meeting point.
Public Transport: Nearest bus stop is Opp Denne Road which is approx. 20 minutes from the meeting point.
Meeting point and toilets at barn
GUIDELINES FOR YOUNGER SIBLINGS
The activities are tailored to children over 5 years old, so are not suitable for younger siblings. We would recommend our Nature Tots groups for 3-5 year olds instead.
All children must be accompanied by an adult.
Please wear suitable outdoor clothing and walking boots/wellingtons. Drink, snack and mud provided.
We apologise that this location has extremely limited wheelchair access.
Sorry, no dogs allowed at Wildlife Watch sessions.
This is what one of the mums had to say about the group…
‘ I could not recommend Nature tots highly enough it is just superb. I am a mum of 4 and have done Nature Tots for a few years now and Tamara has always kept my son’s interested and kept him engaged in all the activities that are topical for that day. Nature tots, even after doing it for a couple of years is different every session. The activities you do are so inventive and such fun it’s not just my son who enjoys it, I love it!’
