This year we are taking part in a wildlife survey in conjunction with the Woodland Trust. Each week, any plants or animals & bugs we identify will be added to the national database and the changing seasons and animal migration and hibernation patterns will be recorded. You can then log on to your computers at home with your child and see the map of our site and what we have found - then compare with other sites in the UK. It is a great way of extending outdoor learning with o

I hope you've all had a lovely summer so far!
Forest School starts for the autumn term with jewel coloured leaves and campfire smoke drifting through the trees on Monday 9th September through to 14th October from 0930 - 1130 am every week. The 6 week term costs £30. Pay as you go is £6 a session and extra siblings joining in activities and having snacks / drinks are £1.
Watch out for news of taster sessions coming up shortly where you can see what the fuss is all about without committing to a full term!
We are busy renovating the site and this website. Plans for the site include an 'A' frame all weather shelter, story telling chair for unique interactive stories each week, and a revamp of the mud kitchen and play areas.
Plans for the ethical development of this business are apace, with a charitable donation helping sustainable businesses in the third world (micro lending) - we like to think of it as a small business run by a mum here in our well-off society helping another mum in a place where opportunities are hard to come by. We are also working on twinning our forest school with another family session in Scandinavia, where Forest School was first developed.
Look forward to seeing friends from last year again, and welcoming new ones.
