National Park Young Ambassadors 

 

The Beacons National Park has opened an initiative allowing young children to become self assessed National Park Young Ambassadors. It’s a really simple, fun way to help children connect with nature and their local environment. It focuses on four key areas, Discovery, Enjoyment, Understanding and Conservation.
It’s a great little exercise that is simple, free and might help you share some outdoor leaning time together.

Bore da pawb! Hope you are all well and safe. This morning we thought we would share with you what we have been up to. This is me and my son, Matthew during our daily walk. We are lucky to live near a river path and have been walking here daily. We have been looking for signs of springtime and enjoy watching out for squirrels and different types of birds. We have seen lots of singing Robins and a family of Blue tits. The buds are coming out on the trees and lots of flowers are popping up all over. Please share with us what you are doing, learning or have seen out and about. 

Email or tweet your pictures, we would love to see them and have enjoyed the ones shared with us already.  smiley

Stay safe and we are missing you all,

Mrs T-G x

Show us how you are staying active, maybe you're exercising in the garden or going for a walk, having a go at a Joe Wicks workouts or some Cosmic Yoga.
