Stories, imaginative activities and outdoor adventures in a beautiful historic parkland.

 

Each week we choose a different story as the starting point for our play and build out activities around the themes, characters and plot. We always go on an outdoor adventure around the gardens and parkland at Gatton and we make things linked to the story to take home.

 

  • Outdoor learning
  • Fresh air and exercise
  • Discovering nature
  • Space and freedom
  • Wild adventure
  • Craft activities
  • Developing imagination and creativity
  • Fine motor skills
  • Exploring different materials and skills
  • Learning Together
  • Enjoy learning and playing with our family, other children and experienced leaders

"Great, love it. It combines everything I want to do in the day - outdoors, learning about nature, art."

 

"Great ideas and very good fun - really imaginative."

 

Example of a session:
The Gruffalo
Listen to the story together
Make a mouse finger puppet and take him for a walkthrough the 'deep, dark wood' to discover the animals in the story
Enjoy an outdoor run-around game looking for the parts of the Gruffalo that have been hidden and stick them together to make a picture
Use your imagination to find natural objects that look like turned out toes, purple prickles and other ingredients that can be added to our 'Gruffalo crumble'. Add soil and water and bake!
Make a Gruffalo puppet to take home
Enjoy some of our crumble which has been baked into chocolate cake!

 

Every Friday at Gatton Park, Reigate
Morning and afternoon sessions
Sessions also run during school holidays
Other siblings are welcome - but please supervise then carefully

"Fantastic!! We love the activities. Lots of planning thought is always put in."

 

"The best toddler activity around by MILES!"

 

"Absolutely fantastic - such a good learning experience for pre-schoolers. There's nothing like it. So wonderful to link books with nature. We love it"

 

Our sessions cost £5 per child during term-time and £7 per child during school holidays. Please book on any children that will be using materials - other siblings are welcome to come along to the sessions of course.
