Event Details

Half-term Farm & Forest Fun!

This autumn half-term we've got the perfect combination of outdoor activities for kids both on a farm and a forest!

Dates:

Wednesday 25th October, 10am-3pm

Thursday 26th October, 10am-3pm

NB. One-day bookings will be available from 6th October (subject to availability).

 

This event is for children aged 5-7 years old. To ensure that activities are made hands-on and achievable for the group we alway work with a small age-range and a group of no more than 8 children. Looking for activities for 8-11 year olds? Click here. 

 

What's in store...

Day 1 is spent at The Community Farm, a beautiful Organic farm with yurt, over-looking Chew Valley Lake. We'll get the chance to harvest crops from the field and cook up a seasonal snack in our yurt! We'll also explore the huge amount of wildlife on the farm - having a go at tracking, pond-dipping and mini-beast hunting. We'll also be getting creative, using natural materials for our own art project :-)

 

Day 2 will be our Forest School day, within a nearby private woodland. Children will get the opportunity to explore the woodland, harvest natural materials and learn how to use hand-tools for their own woodcraft project. We'll cook snacks over a campfire, play woodland games and have fun!

 

NB. If your children have attended previous Farm and Forest Fun days with us, rest assured that we always run new activities to keep it fresh and exciting and in-line with the seasons.

 

It's the perfect antidote the the school classroom!

 

If you're keen to get your kids outside and re-connected with food and the natural world then this is the perfect opportunity!

 

Recommend a friend and you both receive 10% off your booking! More info below.

 

Our Forest School Leader

Our Farm & Forest Fun days are run by Claire Rosling from Earthwise who is a qualified and experienced Forest School Leader. Claire runs all of the children's activity days and educational visits to The Community Farm. She is first aid trained and is DBS checked. All volunteer helpers present on the day are also DBS checked. If you have any queries about the day then please contact Claire@getearthwise.co.uk.

 

Location

Our Farm & Forest Fun days are being held in the glorious Chew Valley. Click here to see both locations on a map.

Detailed directions will be sent within order confirmation emails.

 

To ensure children get the most from their experience, we limit our activities to a maximum of 8 children so book early to avoid disapointment.

Toilet Facilities

Since the Forest School (Day 2) is out in the wild woods we have no permanent toilet facilities on site and so will be providing a temporary, private (and hygienic) latrine that we will show children how to use. A great skill to learn for wild camping! Hand-washing facilities will be provided. A portaloo and handwashing is provided at the farm (Day 1).
