A series of activities for children on half-term will start today at a historic building.

The City of London Corporation has launched a scheme for children to learn about the ancient woodland of Epping Forest.

Held at Queen Elizabeth's Hunting Lodge in Rangers Road, Chingford, each children's passport will be stamped every time they attend a family learning event.

Once children have a row of stamps, they will receive a reward and 'learner' status.

Starting today from 12-3pm, children will learn about the connection between maths and nature.

On Friday, during the same hours, visitors will learn about Tudor stained glass, its local history, and will watch the glass being assembled.  

The events are free with a £1 suggested voluntary donation per person.
