About the event
Our sessions primarily follow the Forest School ethos of child led learning, A usual session finds us in the woods putting up ropes, using tools and encouraging a deep connection with the woodland environment. We frequently have a fire and cook a snack on it, this can be anything from smores to popcorn, damper dread, drop scones and hot chocolate (although not all in one go!).
All our sessions will be held entirely outside, so please ensure your child(ren) are dressed appropriately for the weather (hat scarf, suncream, waterproofs as appropriate to the season) and be aware that is can be a tad cooler in the woods than elsewhere. They will also need closed toed shoes and you may prefer to send them in long trousers as there are stinging nettles and midges in the woods.
Please note we now have two age groups for home educated activities; 6-11 years and 11-16years.
All sessions are for unaccompanied children.
All young people must be dropped off by an adult, who must confirm their emergency contact details with the member of staff at the arrival point, before departing along with confirming who will be collecting said child.
