Reasons to come

Time is spent exploring the site using a multi-sensory approach and using games that develop an awareness of the woodland ecosystem.

Challenges and activities such as lighting and cooking on a fire or constructing a shelter are introduced which provide a multitude of authentic learning opportunities as well as being exciting and engaging.

We will build on children’s interests and ideas to create play and learning opportunities that are more child led and therefore address their individual learning needs and maximise engagement.


Please come prepared to get muddy and wear enough layers to stay warm, and bring a packed lunch. Snacks and drinks provided.

All the relevant policies and procedures that cover the smooth and safe running of the project are available on request.
