Someone who has learnt how to learn
Join a group of young investigators as we explore local woodland and have fun amongst the trees. TESTIMONIALS "Thank you for today! Bea came back elated, full of stories about where chalk comes from, the digging bumble bee and how much you love trees! She can't wait for next Thursday."
