For Children in P1 up to and including S1
At Forest School we encourage and inspire individuals to enjoy the opportunities offered by natural play.
By participating in engaging, motivating and achievable tasks and activities in a woodland environment each child has an opportunity to develop intrinsic motivation and balanced emotional and social skills.
Forest School has demonstrated success with children of all ages who visit local woodlands on a regular basis. Through play and self directed learning, children have the opportunity to learn and the natural environment, how to handle risks and most importantly how to use their own initiative to solve problems, communicate and co-operate with others.
At ‘ Wild Time’ children will have the opportunity to try things such as building dens, making tree swings, play and exploring the river (weather dependant), climbing trees, trying out our famous mudslide, making bows and arrows, building and lighting a fire, toasting marshmallows……. and much more.
We will provide a small snack and drink for your child.
