Biggar Forest School 2019

April 17 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

£3 - £4

Biggar Forest School is back!

 

Our first 6 week block will take place from Wednesday 17th April 2019.

As always we are able to pick up from the primary school at Biggar and walk up to the woodland site.

Sessions start at 3.30pm and finish at 5pm, snacks and drinks are provided, often with an exciting snack cooked over the fire.

 

What is forest school?

Forest school is an increasingly popular programme where children spend quality time on their local green or woodland spaces, make connections with nature, experience free play with elements of healthy risk, use tools, make nature crafts and have an all round amazing time!

The many benefits of forest school include:

Improved relationships and social skills

Improved health and well being

Better physical fitness

Improved mental health and a more positive outlook

Improvements in fine and gross motor skills

 

During the sessions we have fully trained Level 3 Forest School practitioners, full qualified outdoor first aiders and volunteers with a range of skills to help your children have a fulfilling and happy time in the woods.  At each session we have the following:

 

Tree Swings

Rope Ladders

Hammocks

Mud Kitchen

Digger Zone

Den Building

Fire Lighting

Nature Crafts

 

These sessions are very popular and we anticipate sessions being fully booked.  If you would like to reserve a space for your child on the block tickets are available here.  Any remaining tickets will be released on a weekly basis for £5 per child or £4 per sibling.

 

Please ensure that children have appropriate footwear and waterproof trousers in their school bags and a snack for as soon as they finish school, thank you.
