Forest School is... based on an idea that originated in Scandinavia, using the outdoors as a learning environment.
Bredon Forest School... provides exactly that learning environment in a safe, outdoor 'classroom', located in a secluded private woodland only two miles from Bredon.
Activities include... hide and seek, den building, picture making, bug hunting, collecting and sorting, singing, listening, observing growth and decay, noting changes in seasons, leaf printing, tree rubbing and many more.
Materials can include... mud, sticks, logs, leaves, stones, twigs, string, collecting boxes, magnifying glasses, tarpaulins, books, pictures, paper, charcoal, sand, water... and plenty of imagination!.
Sessions are... provided on a regular basis for local schools, playgroups and child-minder groups. Other groups arrange visits on a more casual basis.
