Children from Kelling Primary School enjoyed a teddy bears’ picnic at the nearby Kelling Heath Holiday Park to celebrate National Picnic Week.
The group of 20 five and six year olds hunted for lost teddies in the adventure playground before taking their bears on a nature walk around the park’s new woodland boardwalk.
Kelling Heath provided a picnic lunch for the visitors, including a sandwich and lots of healthy snacks.
The park’s activities and events co-ordinator Sarah Nichols said: “The children and their bears had a brilliant time at Kelling Heath.
“It has always been our mission to promote hands-on outdoor learning and to teach local young people about the importance of their natural environment.
“We extend this ethos to our visitors too – there’s a packed calendar of activities for families holidaying at the park, including pond dipping, bat detecting, bushcraft, archery, storytelling walks and canoeing.”
