This is our 11 week summer term Forest School after school club, with collection your childs Primary school.
Weekly on Mondays starting on the 15th of April 2024- no forest school on the 6th of May-bank holiday
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 children’s 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.
15th April- 20th May 24
3rd June – 8th July 24
no forest school on the 6th of May-bank holiday
We believe forest school should be open to all – so we offer reduced and fully funded spaces to those in receipt of certain benefits or unwaged for our clubs where possible. Please email us for details.More info
