Little Nature Champions

Join our Little Nature Champions, designed to get families playing and exploring the outdoors together, come rain or shine

Join us on Mondays throughout September and October for our Little Nature Champions sessions.

We’ll explore the Horniman Museum Gardens with lots of fun filled activity to inspire you and your child’s love of nature and adventure!

Each week we will have a different theme and activities including nature crafts, games, learning about local wildlife, free play and nature inspired stories. Themes will explore the changing seasons from spring through to autumn.

We want your whole family, both children and adults to have fun playing and learning together outdoors, getting hands on and messy.

All of our session leaders and helpers have received Forest School training and are committed to its ethos of encouraging and developing curiosity about the world around us.

Weekly themes

Week 1 – The Wonder of Autumn!

Week 2 – The Grand Leaf Hunt

Week 3 – Autumn Animals

Sessions take place in all weathers, so everyone – children and adults, should come dressed ready for fun outdoors. Sessions will only be rescheduled in extreme weather conditions e.g. dangerous high winds. In every session we will also provide a biscuit and hot drink or squash.
