Forest School – Brought to you!
What I offer
Traditional Forest School
If you have access to woodlands and permission to use it then I can offer a more traditional Forest School experience. This will usually be blocks of 5 or 6 sessions for up to 10 children at a time. Each session will last 2 hours and include a drink and snack.
Alternative Forest School / PPA Cover
This version of Forest School is more structured to allow a whole class to take part. This can be part of your PPA time planning as I only need one LSA for a class of 30 children. Each session lasts for 2 hours and includes a drink and snack. Don’t worry if you haven’t got a large woods – it works on playing fields next to shrubby areas with a few trees and hedges.
I charge £125 per 2-hour session. This includes VAT and all materials and resources used. There may be additional costs for transport if you are not local.
I am DBS checked, Outdoor First Aid trained and a Qualified Teacher. The Learning Ranger is fully insured, including Public Liability, and activities are Risk Assessed. I will bring everything that’s needed for the activities, apart from any additional adults that are required. Session times and activities are fully flexible and I am always happy to tailor them to your needs.
What is Forest School?
Forest School is an inspirational process that has been developing in Scandinavian countries since the 1950’s but only made its way over to Britain in the mid 1990’s.
Its basic aim is to connect children and adults with nature whilst supporting their social, emotional and physical development.
Forest School sessions provide children and adults the opportunity to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning and play.
Activities during Forest School sessions may include shelter building, fire lighting, using tools, outdoor cooking, games and self-led discovery.
