Nature Tots ready for autumn @chesworthfarm

Nature Tots – woodland fun sessions for under fives from Sussex Wildlife Trust @chesworthfarm – is ready for autumn, bringing a whole new set of fun activities.  “There is nothing more satisfying than welcoming the change of season whilst warming yourself with hot chocolate by a campfire you have built yourself, ” says Forest School leader Tamara Jewell.  “But fire lighting will not be the only new skill to learn! We have lots of exciting plans for these new sessions which will provide opportunities for children to use tools such as saws and drills and learn new crafts.

“We will play games, build confidence and make new friends whilst exploring the wildlife highlights that Chesworth has to offer. I am still hoping to catch a glimpse of the resident barn owl, but the llamas are much easier to spot! In addition to Nature Tots we have planned two Forest School taster sessions in October for home educated children at Chesworth, in advance of a further Winter block of dates.”

Plus Sussex Wildlife Trust is looking for volunteers to come and help out with sessions at the farm: the children are aged 3-5 and are accompanied by an adult. Volunteers do not necessarily need prior experience of Forest School. The hours are approx. 08:45 until 13:00 and it involves greeting families, setting up, helping deliver the activities with the group and packing away afterwards. So if you want experience of Forest School/ Nature tots work in the Horsham area, do contact Tamara by email:
