Forest School term 1 2022
Forest School sessions are for preschool children aged 2 - 5 (siblings under 2 come along for free). These sessions are held on Wednesdays in the Ocean Grove Nature Reserve. The aim of these sessions is to allow children to engage in child led play. Some structure will exist in the provision of crafts and campfire cooking activities but the hope is that children explore, discover, create connections with each other and the space and have plenty of opportunities for healthy risk taking.
We will have a different nature inspired activity each week with the aim of getting the kids (and adults) to appreciate our natural environment in a more creative way. Examples of activities include, sun prints, felt making, imprints in clay, painting with natural paintbrushes, collage, mandalas, handmade paint, bark painting, pinch pots and more.
Each session will finish with a (healthy & vegan) hot chocolate and some food cooked over the campfire, be it popcorn or a healthy veggie stew.
(In case of a lockdown, refunds will be issued for missed sessions).
When : Wednesdays 9th February - 6th April 2021 (9 sessions in total)
Where: The Ocean Grove Nature Reserve
Please note: parents are required to stay and connect with their little people for this session.
