Our Half Term sessions are designed to allow children to freely explore the woodland and play with their friends. Children nowadays very rarely get the opportunity to unsupervised play and we are able to offer children a large space that allows them to do this. The children are taught the rules and the boundaries of the site at the beginning of the session and they understand that they have the freedom to go and play out of sight of an adult. We also mix the ages of the children together. “In mixed age group play, younger children naturally learn skills from the older kids as a form of mimicry, as well as having the opportunity to face the challenge of interacting with an older audience. Older children also benefit too by learning important skills around taking responsibility for younger children”. We provide a variety of games and activities that the children can do if they want to, from experience the children mainly want to play with their friends and go off and explore together.
