There is never a dull moment at Forest school. The children are free to choose what to do but we always have so many interesting projects to get involved in. This year some of the activities have been black-smithing and making a pit forge, seed bombs, see-saws and log playgrounds, camp-fire pizzas and jam making, charcoal pencil making, whittling mallets and mushrooms, building a raft to launch at the Pirate Castle, tree climbing, Firelighting skills and axe work, Clay and kiln making, Shelter building, weaving, primitve axe and bow making and anything else the children can imagine!

Air Pollution Projects

We have been working with various primary schools and boroughs on the theme of air pollution over the past few years. The theme was introduced to children through a series of workshops, active science and arts activities.

These projects resulted in a number of animation films we created in collaboration with various artists.
