The Magic of Books

Our Book Days are a brilliant way of taking children on a journey into the world of reading and creative thinking... and so much more.

Choosing to explore a book can engage children across a range of topics in innovative and exciting ways. Whether it’s creating a hedgehog shelter using natural materials, or following a bear hunt trail exploring the habitat, or reading a compass and learning teamwork skills or learning natural navigation techniques and orienteering – there is a wealth of experiences just waiting to be explored.

Children from Year 2 Russell Lower School in Ampthill are reading Mark the Mountain Guide. They spent a day at Dell Farm with activities themed around the book.
