The Learning Lodge
A half-term event for families based on the book The Lost Words by Robert MacFarlane and Jackie Norris – Lost Word Scavenger Hunt.
All over the country, there are words disappearing from children’s lives. These are the words of the natural world — Dandelion, Otter, Bramble and Acorn, all gone. The rich landscape of wild imagination and wild play is rapidly fading from our children’s minds.
The Lost Words stands against the disappearance of wild childhood. It is a joyful celebration of nature words and the natural world they invoke. With acrostic spell-poems by award-winning writer Robert Macfarlane and hand-painted illustration by Jackie Morris, this enchanting book captures the irreplaceable magic of language and nature for all ages.
Walk the Loop is a small charity which promotes the well-being, learning and development of children and those responsible for their care through walking in nature and related activities. Further details on the event to follow.
For whom: Children aged 0-8 with their parent-carers; older siblings are welcome.
Events are £2 for children aged 2 and above. There is no charge for younger children.
Where: The Hornbeam Learning Lodge at Pimp Hall Nature Reserve, off Kings Road, Chingford, E4 7HR
