What is Forest School?

Forest School is based on an idea that originated in Scandinavia, using the outdoors as a learning environment. Bredon Forest School has been running since 2002 and 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.

Holiday 'fundays' are not structured activity sessions by adults. Primary aged children are encouraged to make new friends and play and explore using resources provided. They can build dens, climb obstacle courses, play on ropes & swings or create art with natural materials etc. Adult supervision of tools and crafts available when needed.

Bredon Forest School is not a business but is run for the benefit of local children by volunteers. Funds raised are mainly used to support Kemerton Conservation Trust, insurance, training & resources. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Owl.
