We are very lucky to have Essex Wildlife Trust running some forest school sessions with us at the moment. Children, along with a family member, are learning and experiencing the benefits of getting outside for our health and well-being.

How did they get there? We then looked at the artwork in the book and began experimenting with chalk, pastel and painting pencils […]
