Swinging from a large oak tree and toasting marshmallows over a camp fire were just two of the activities open to children in Roydon.

A nature day – hosted by Fox Wood Forest School on May 11 – offered crafts and plenty of ways to play as children explored the great outdoors.

Joint director Angela Lamb said: “It was definitely a success. We were really pleased with the response.

“Children like being free to explore and outdoor play is not always available to children these days. But this sort of environment gives them space to do that.”

Children enjoyed a mud kitchen, hammocks, a rope swing in an oak tree, craft stations and toasting marshmallows over a camp fire.

“It was an open day for people to come to have a little look at what we are doing. It was a chance to try out some activities and explore the site and play,” said Angela.

The forest school runs taster sessions, without having to commit to a full term.
