Half Term Event to celebrate the book The Lost Words by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Norris – Lost Word Scavenger Hunt. This event is on Willow, Ivy and Fern.

An event for families based on the book The Lost Words by Robert MacFarlane.

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 children up to 8 and their parent-carers. Older siblings are welcome.

Cost: £2.00 per child (free for children under 2)
