About the event

 Forest schools help to encourage physical development and wellbeing in many different ways. Physical exercise helps release endorphins to help us feel better, it allows us to get our required daily intake of vitamin D by being out in the day light and sun shine, it can help fight fatigue and restore our immune system. Forest schools can also help to build friendships, it encourages team work and can build relationships. It allows thinking time from the daily challenges of our daily routines and can give breathing and thinking space allowing its users to self-focus and can offer a reflection process to help rebuild and refocus on our wellbeing. It also helps developments in many ways such as physical development in gross motor skills which are enhanced during climbing & balancing activities when tree climbing and natural obstacles courses made by the children. Running activities during hide and seek games, lifting, carrying and dragging during shelter building. Fine motor skills are also developed during activities such as striking a fire steel, lashing & knot tying, using a peeler or knife when whittling or preparing a feather stick for a fire and using a small beating hammer when leaf printing. The sessions are fully outdoors and are held in a privately owned woodland, with this in mind please make sure that you dress for the weather. All sessions will need a minimum of 6 children to go ahead and if sessions need to be cancelled because of low numbers we will ofder a refund or move your place to another session. Drinks and snacks are included for the children and adults, and all the equipment needed for the sessions will be provided. A sibling discount is available and can be selected when booking your place. Please feel free to drop us a message if you would like anymore information.
