This is a 10-week term. Our Forest School Club takes place on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons and Saturday mornings. Our club is targeted at children with an adventurous spirit in need of a place to let off steam after a busy day or week of indoor instruction. We provide traditional outdoor experiences from making bows and arrows to taking care of insects and plants. We provide practical skills such as how to cook on a campfire and build a natural shelter. Like all of our programmes, these sessions have a strong influence on the development of emotional intelligence, self-esteem, and social skills. Our sessions are inspired by the natural world and its cycles, cultural celebrations and stories. This helps children to develop a strong sense of their place in the world. We work to encourage the next generation of caretakers for our planet to emerge through the personal experience of the wonder of nature. Children attending this programme will be: Ready to spend time away from their primary caregivers. Able to respect the boundaries that are necessary to ensure safety in the outdoors. Physically able to play outdoors for the duration of the session in the tropical environment.
