Family Forest school 3 – 11 years old:
This Family Forest School will be a selection of interactive Woodland activities. The sessions will be planned for children of all ages between 3-11. The activities will all be focused on outdoor, natural enjoyment. The activities will be led by Wriggly, a qualified Forest School Leader. Come along and be inspired by the interaction that you and your child will have with the woodland environment. To help aid the inspirational process we may explore some of the following:
Woodland skills – tool use from sheaf knife to a hand drill
Environmental art, create using natural materials.
Story telling and music
Responding to children’s ideas for play, exploring and investigating the big outdoors.
Shelter building for shade and rain
Fire lighting, camp-fire cooking and kelly kettle use
Respect for ourselves, others and the environment
