SNAIL and bug hunting was on the agenda when children and parents enjoyed a fun afternoon.

They took part in the event at Ryton Pools Country Park on Wednesday to get the opportunity to get closer to nature, get active and enjoy themselves.

It was held by the Council for Learning Outside the Classroom.

The organisation promotes teaching in unconventional locations, such as a school’s grounds, park or nature reserve, theatre or museum. It says such learning is learning more memorable and teaches children to enjoy and appreciate their heritage, culture and the natural world.

Rugby mother Elaine Skates, the organisation’s deputy chief executive said: “We had a brilliant time. You could see how much the children were getting out of it in learning about the natural world and exploring their creativity. I would like thank all involved.”
