What is Woodland Wednesdays/forest school?
Woodland Wednesdays are a Forest School programme; an increasingly popular programme where children spend quality time in 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, fully 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:
