Outdoor learning doesn’t stop when you leave primary school. We provide a range of topics , that are designed to boost confidence, self-esteem, communication, team working amongst others.
We can work to bring complex Curriculum topics outdoors, providing a different learning environment and way of understanding the topics.
Woodland Wellbeing Sessions
The impact of COVID-19 has been detrimental to mental health and wellbeing.
We have designed a programme of a six weeks Woodland Wellbeing sessions. The sessions are tailored to boost holistic development in a safe and relaxing environment.
Forest Schools is a recognised outdoor learning programme, over a periods of a minimum of 6 weeks. Sessions are led by qualified Forest School practitioners.
Sessions are learner led with support from staff. Groups are kept to low numbers to allow for high staff to pupil ratios and to provide more support.
Sessions are held in the same woodland each week and tasks are planned and developed based on reviews and interests with the group.
Below is a list of our popular topics but please get in touch if you have an idea or there is something we haven’t mentioned!
We ask that you come dressed for the session/weather and are prepared to get muddy (at times) and have lots of fun with us.
For information on Forest Schools please see our Primary school page.
