“We have such a brief opportunity to pass on to our children our love for this Earth, and to tell our stories. These are the moments when the world is made whole. In my children's memories, the adventures we've had together in nature will always exist.”
Weekly Forest School Family Groups:
Bright Fires - Mondays
Little Sparks - Tuesdays
These sessions are designed for families who home educate or unschool their children. A chance to get outdoors for skill sharing, connection and relaxation.
There will be some structured activities such as:
• Bug hunting
• Den building
• Assault courses
• Nature arts and crafts
• Campfire cooking
• Tree climbing
• Singing and music
• Tool use
These are mostly child-led sessions and we encourage families/carers to follow their child’s interests. We will be including children in the design of sessions and projects. Please bring a packed lunch along with you.
We offer places for children aged 0-13 years at £6 per child, £4 for first sibling, £3 for second sibling, babes in arms are free. No more than 3 children per adult. Adults are free.
There is a compost toilet onsite and hot and cold hand washing with soap dispensers. We ask that attendees manage their social distancing and be aware of other people's space.
ONLINE BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL!
If there is sufficient interest in this group we will expand it in the future to be a full day for children to attend without families.
We endeavour to work in most weathers but, if the winds are too high, we may need to cancel sessions due to health and safety. If this occurs then we will contact you by email by 6pm the evening before the session. Any pre-paid spaces will be transferred to subsequent sessions.
