Forest school-style day

Half or full day

Child led sessions based solely around the Forest School ethos, building confidence and gaining life skills. Activities such as shelter building, natural crafts, firelighting and much more.

Focus

Decision making, communication and personal organisational skills (PHSE)

Celebrations

Half or full day

A wonderful opportunity for children to reflect on what they're grateful for, and to recognise and celebrate difference and diversity. If doing a half day, your class can focus on 'Saying Thank You' or 'Celebrating Ourselves': a full day combines both themes. Activities include reflecting elements of nature such as honey from bees and song from birds, learning about the qualities of Celtic trees and doing leaf printing, cooking bread over an open fire to share, building Jewish Sukkot shelters, and celebrating together with food, drinks and a story around the fire.

Focus

Geography, PHSE citizenship, literacy, science, religious education, nature connection

Autumn changes
