Forest School

Forest School is a concept that can be linked back to the early work of some of the most influential educational theorists and has been well embedded in Scandinavian education.

 

CHILDREN’S BUSHCRAFT NATURE DAY

WITH FOREST SCHOOL ACTIVITIES

 

(5 – 12 year olds) from 9:15 - 3:15

This day is designed as a retreat for adults, to stop and deeply connect. Some of the topics and practices covered in the talks are not appropriate for children.  For these reasons children who come must be booked onto our Bushcraft nature day. This allows you as a parent to fully immerse yourself in the day of discovery, knowing your little ones are nearby having fun for the course of the day.

 

We have a limited number of spaces for a special day of activities lead by Forest School Leaders in the grounds and surrounding land of the Farmhouse. Your child/children will spend the day immersed in nature. Playing, exploring, being hands on and having fun (with a spot of yoga too naturally)! 

The children can choose what activities they want to do using natural resources, their imagination and interests. Some of the activities on offer may be making bow and arrows, using tools to make key rings, pencil holders and more, natural weaving looms, woodland walks, den building, clay creatures, yoga, mud play, toasting marshmallows on a fire and more. The session is for 5 to 12 year olds from 9:15-3:15pm. It is run by a Forest School Practitioner who is a qualified teacher with First Aid training.

Forest School is a concept that can be linked back to the early work of some of the most influential educational theorists and has been well embedded in Scandinavian education. It involves children learning in the outdoors for prolonged periods of time whatever the weather! There is no such thing as bad weather for Forest School, just bad clothing choices! Forest School gives children hands on learning opportunities in an environment that stimulates all of their senses. It encourages their curiosity, problem solving, independence and gives them the chance to take risks in a safe way. 

Please pack a packed lunch and drinks for your child/children. Why not join your kiddos for the marshmallows around the firepit (everyone’s favourite bit).
