Forest School Sessions:

We are equipped to work in your school; with experience ranging from Foundation Stage to Secondary School, we are able to provide a suitable programme to meet the needs of your children. If you have suitable grounds, we can work onsite. or if there is a local woodland, arrangements could be made to visit this.

Forest School sessions work best with small groups of children (to a maximum of 15 children), as this best suits the philosophy of Forest School Education. Programmes can be tailored to meet the needs of the children and reflect the topics that go on in school. However, a large part of the learning will be through exploration and through children identifying their own needs. Forest School Programmes will usually last for a minimum of one term (6-7 weeks), to ensure the best possible learning outcomes.

Please consider choosing us to work with your Pupil Premium or EHCP children. A Forest School Programme can offer a safe environment to develop individual confidence and consequently equip learners to achieve their personal targets.

Whole Class Outdoor Learning Sessions:

We also have the capacity to work with a whole class at a time, on focused outdoor learning objectives.  We are able to plan and prepare for learning connected to your topics/interests or we are happy to suggest learning workshops.  In the past we have delivered workshops on British Native Trees, British Native Birds, Fire-lighting skills, Literature – The Gruffalo (YR/KS1), The Lost Words (KS2) and Measuring and Maths in the outdoors, to name but a few.

Beach School – A number of schools and nurseries in the Bristol area have become interested in exploring their local coastline.  Over the past few years we have had the opportunity to facilitate teachers and their classes in visiting the coastline between Portishead and Weston-Super-Mare.  We are open for discussion if this is something that interests you.

Previously we have worked with one class for a whole day, up to shorter workshops with five classes spread across the whole day.

If any of the above, sounds like a good proposition, please do not hesitate to get in contact. We will only be too happy to discuss any potential plans with you.

I’m a Survivor Workshop

We put this workshop together at the request of some Upper Key Stage Two teachers, to fit in with a topic they were running. As it happens, it’s become quite popular and we revisit a number of schools to lead this workshop. It can easily be adapted to work with Lower Key Stage Two.
