Forest Schools, Woodland & Habitat
Forest school activities give children wonderful opportunities to learn about nature and to develop confidence through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment with trees and plants. Some settings may have access to a ready made ‘forest’ which we use as a starting point for our designs – for others we create special ‘forest’ areas that enable Forest School practitioners to share the wonderful, imaginative learnings that the forest schools programme supports.
Being able to play in woodlands provides children with an experience which is not only fun but full of learning potential as the changing seasons bring new and exciting opportunities to discover.
Even in the smallest of spaces, it is possible to incorporate a woodland area into your outdoors - making use of an area of existing trees where possible, or creating a completely new area where no trees currently exist. By introducing specific plants we can ensure that your woodland attracts a variety of bugs, insects and even frogs - all the mini-beasts which children love to learn about. We can also create wormeries, bird boxes and other contained habitats to allow learning about specific creatures and how they live.
