These sessions are open ended opportunities for children to direct their own play and follow their own interests. Mud painting, mud kitchen, creative activities, digging in soil, bug hunting , exploring. The fire will be lit and there will be a chance for all children to try their hand at toasting a marshmallow. We aim to make sessions as relaxed as possible, taking reasonable measures to minimise sharing of resources, limiting the capacity to offer space for physical movement whilst still having a sense of choice and fun! £7 per child per session.
