Event description
A semi structured family session for Home Ed children seven years old and up and their younger siblings and parents.

About this Event

Half termly blocks of sessions; building on previous weeks learning and discovery.

Children are free to choose from our planned and structured activities and can participate at will or not during sessions. However we ask that you book and attend all six sessions for the half term to gain maximum impact and value from Forest School.

Typical activities include den building, games, natural craft activities, use of hand tools and fire lighting.

Through these carefully planned activities children grow in confidence, and develop resilience and self-reliance.

There is ample time for free play and socialising safely at a distance.

All steps are taken to ensure your family's safety and measures are in place to accommodate social distancing and extra sanitation.

Please bring warm and waterproof clothing and a drink of water and your own snack if needed, as this is not supplied at the moment.

We have adjusted our sessions to be socially distanced and comply with Covid 19 prevention guidelines to keep you safe.

Our forest school sessions build on the previous weeks learning. So it is best for a child to attend all six sessions.

Normally we request that you book the whole half term in advance, HOWEVER DUE TO THE UNCERTAINTY OF LOCKDOWN RESTRICTIONS, WE ARE CURRENTLY ACCEPTING BOOKINGS ON A SINGLE SESSION BASIS. THEREFORE YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO BOOK THE ENTIRE HALF TERM OF SIX SESSIONS.

Here is an idea of what you can expect to do.

Please be aware that this may change at any time.

week 1. Get comfy and get to know the woods: Make seed bombs and sit mats and go on a Scavenger hunt.

Week 2. Get in tune with your surroundings: Explore animal trails and their homes, learn to listen and watch out for animals. Make an animal mask or have your face painted.

Week 3. Get creative: Make flower and mud art. Make plaster casts. Follow and lay a trail and learn some tracking signs.

Week 4. More creations; making and following patterns and using your brain: Make a beautiful and unique "Tataki Zome" wall hanging picture to take home (the Japanese art of flower and leaf pounding). Try our rope course trail. Play Woodland Bingo.

Week 5. Looking at plants and how they grow: Make a friendly "Grass Head Pet" to keep. Create a Journey Stick or Forest Bracelet on your walk. Have a go at leaf and bark rubbings and learn the names of some trees.

Week 6: Lets celebrate!: Come on a treasure hunt with us- what will you find? We might have a fire. Make a "Bug Home" to put in your garden, or make a mobile to swing and rattle in the wind.
