Do you want to bring your class out to the woods for a day of woodland based activities?
Wildaboutwoods Ltd take children on an exciting journey of woodland discovery. Activities are adapted to meet the requirements of each group. Here at Wildaboutwoods Ltd we have experience of working with primary and secondary aged children with a range of behaviour, emotional, learning and physical challenges.
The sessions make a positive impact on children's confidence, social skills, communication, motivation and concentration, physical skills and knowledge and understanding. Furthermore, we are likely to provide new perspectives for accompanying teachers who see their children learn in a different setting as well as creating a ripple effect when the children share their experiences back at school and home.
So, what sessions do we offer?
We have sessions for schools either based at Airy Knapp Woods or based in your very own school.
Wildaboutwoods Ltd offer all sorts of activity days for local schools based on Forest School principles. We can tailor the sessions to any age group. Our focus is on learning through exploration and discovery outdoors. These sessions can include building dens, creativity, teamwork, exploring the woodland, games, campfires and child-led fun. All you have to do is let us know, if you want to come to the woods or you would like us to come to you and what part of the curriculum you would like us to follow, and we will build your day around that.
Some of our themed days for younger groups can include focusing on favourite themes and linking this to fun creative activities. E.G Stickman, The Gruffalo, We’re Going on a Bear Hunt and more. These can include crafts, treasure-hunts and discovery.
We also offer sessions tied into The Great Fire of London, stone age days or we can tie the day into art and crafts or Science.
The above sessions run from 10am to 2pm.
We focus on the whole child with the aim to build: self-esteem, core strength and coordination, resilience, confidence and friendships through SPICE – social, physical, intellectual, creative and emotional development. Call for further details.
