Children from Jigsaw Preschool enjoyed their Autumn visit to Bincombe Beeches where they observed the wildlife, had fun crunching through the colourful fallen leaves and throwing sycamore seeds into the air and watching the helicopter shapes fall to the ground. The youngsters also collected fir cones and feathers, stopped to listen to the birds, identified different types of trees and visited the ‘bug hotel’.
A spokesperson for Jigsaw Preschool said: “We have visited Bincombe Beeches on many occasions over the year, through the changing seasons. The children love to explore our outside world and spot the wooden sculptures, badger setts, rabbits and birds. Bincombe Beeches is such a marvellous provision for the area and if you haven’t already been, we highly recommend this hidden treasure.”
The observation area at the nature reserve is one of the children’s favourite places, where on a sunny day, they can enjoy spectacular views across the countryside while enjoying their packed lunches at the picnic table. Since beginning their seasonal visits to Bincombe Beeches, Jigsaw Preschool has encouraged many families to discover the natural beauty spot and visit during out of school hours.
