Forest School

WHAT WE DO

Adventure Walks

We walk a fair distance, these walks always become 'journeys' - child led adventures, discovering nature at a deeper level.

Make a Camp

We always create a 'base' - for shelter, fires, eating, creating, inventing, explaining & for sharing stories & experiences.

Rope Education

Mini abseiling, bridges, climbing, swings & hammocks.

Crafts

Green woodworking, sculpture, clay, weaving, bug-dens, knots & lashings.

Fires & Outdoor Cooking

Fire science, flint & steel, fire build & light. Cooking-jam, pancakes, popcorn, nettle crisps, hazel biscuits, caramelised apples and lunch!
