Do you want to bring your class out to the woods for a day of woodland based activities?
Do you want sessions for Home Educated Children? OR Would you like us to come into your school?
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 four packages for school; Three based at Airy Knapp Woods and one based in your very own school.
