Forest Schools

A forest school happens when the same group of children, or young people, meet in a woodland environment with a qualified forest school practitioner regularly over a period of at least 6 sessions and engage in a child led exploration of their group in that wood.

Forest school gives participants the opportunity to develop socially, spiritually, intellectually and physically. As a result participants self esteem and confidence is improved as is their applied understanding of elements of, among other things, science, maths and geography.

A Forest School Program can include

*    Free play    *    Structured games     *     Bush craft skills    *    Scientific explorations    *    Arts and crafts     *    Fire and cooking     *     Spiritual and imaginative work    *    Green wood work    *    Tool use    *    Den building    *    Almost anything else the children bring to it   *

I hold a level 3 Forest school qualification, DBS check, first aid certificate and insurance.

I run regular Old Skool sessions in Roadhead, CA6.

Holiday Club – For 8 to 13 year olds.

Pre Skool – For 2-5 year olds

Family – for everyone!

New members are always welcome!

I also work with schools, youth and community groups and am happy to discuss taster sessions as well as longer term pieces of work.
