This is our 12 week summer term Forest School after school club, with collection from Gillespie Park Primary school.
Weekly on Fridays
We’ve got so many exciting activities in store for our Forest school this term, the activities closely follow the seasons but include herbal tea making, leather-work, making mallets and green woodcarving using tools, shelter building and dens, rope work, making dipped beeswax candles, whittling, clay work, felting, weaving & dyeing – each session includes grounding activities to help children rest and connect with nature and the environment – some sessions are based on our story-telling activities and include activities with explorative dance!
What to bring:
Please pack a snack, water bottle, rain-coat and waterproof trousers – an extra layer is always a good idea as we are outside for the whole of the sessions. Please wear outdoor shoes – so wellies are great, but just something that you don’t mind getting wet/muddy!
Weather – when it rains we put up a tarpaulin shelter for the children to keep dry under, however being out in the rain can be fun and offers loads of opportunities for Forest school activities; splashing in puddles, making rivers and dams, collecting and transporting water, making mud slides- the childrens imagination goes wild with things to do in the rain!
We play lots of organised games, capture the flag, 40/40 home, eagle eyes, evolution, bat & Mouse and make sure that those who are feeling a bit cautious have plenty of opportunities to join in and make new friends.
