Forest School gives children the opportunity to explore and learn in a wild outdoor setting, over a series of regular sessions. Activities take place in all weathers (except extreme winds or storms), and are specially planned for the group. We combine bushcraft and survival skills with ecology, environmental awareness and creative activities to give young people a challenging and exciting outdoor learning experience.
Our Forest School sessions aim to get the children enjoying working together and being active outdoors, discovering more about their local environment, and learning useful, practical skills.
Some examples of activities include:
- Tying knots for tarps
- Firelighting with sparks
- Baking bread on the campfire
- Cooking our own teas'
- Building group shelters and mini-shelters
- Working together to record the plants, trees, and minibeasts in their woodland
- What to do in an outdoor emergency
- Plants and their uses - and dangers.
The focus is on the young participants and their responsibility to look after themselves, their peers, and their environment, especially when tools and campfires are involved.
We also have a variety of animals that we are learning to care for and gain confidence when handling them, including: Chickens, Rabbits & Guinea Pigs.
During school closure periods, we offer a holiday club for children aged between 3 and 8. For more information, please contact us on 01344625070, or email us on: email@example.com
