So this October half terms why not tick off some of your '50 things to do before you're 11¾' such as play conkers, catch a falling leaf, make a home for a wild animal or find a geocache!
  Have an adventure
  Make every day an adventure by climbing trees, skimming stones, rolling down hills and building dens. Or why not join a led activity such as Geocaching or making like a tree! Plus we have some Halloween fun including apple bobbing and a fancy dress competition.
