What's in store...

Two days of fun in the forest for 5-8 year olds* on Wed 21st & Thur 22nd August in Torhill Woods in Wells.

Over the two days children will have the opportunity to safely use a range of hand-tools for green-wood working, crafting something to take home; cook snacks over the fire; use a fire-striker to light a fire, play woodland games, get physical on the rope swings, rope ladders, hammock; get messy in the mud kitchen and explore!

It's the perfect antidote the the school classroom!

As Forest School leaders, we ensure the days are as child-led as possible -  encouraging the children to explore, play, make and learn, with whatever sparks their interest, both independently and together as a group.

Parent feedback:

"Flo had great fun and chatted non stop about each day when she got home. She is very proud of her achievements, particularly the cooking, learning to saw wood and make a necklace, the campfire, popcorn and making the den - she clearly really enjoyed herself. Very inspirational..."

* Age-range

This event is for children aged 5-8 years old however we do welcome siblings that fall slightly outside this age-bracket (NB. all 4 year olds must be 'school age'). We always work with a maximum of 12 children and a small age-range to ensure that activities are made hands-on and achievable for the whole group.

Can't commit to two days?

We design our Forest Fun experiences as two day events so that the children are able to bond with each other, with us as facilitators and with the woodland around them. There is a profound difference in the way the group approach each other and the environment when they attend for two consecutive days - we see the value in this and so make two day bookings a priority. If there is availability then we may open up one-day bookings a week or two before the event. Please register your interest by emailing claire@getearthwise.co.uk if you are unable to commit to both days.

Facilitators

Our Forest Fun days are run by Claire Rosling from Earthwise who is a qualified and experienced Forest School Leader. Claire runs Forest School sessions for Nursery and Reception at Wells Cathedral School. She is Level 3 Forest School qualified, paediatric first aid trained, food safety certified and DBS checked. All assistants and volunteer helpers present on the day are also DBS checked. If you have any queries about the day then please contact Claire@getearthwise.co.uk.


FAQ

Do I drop children off or do parents stay?   

Parents drop children off for both days. Timings of both days are 10am-3pm. The day is run by Claire Rosling (founder of Earthwise) and an assistant both of whom are DBS checked.
