Half Term Sessions
Our Half Term Sessions are the perfect break away from the structure of school. Here children are allowed to play freely within the woodland and leave the stresses of school behind. Children will engage in a variety of forest school activities like fire lighting, den building, tool use etc but staff will mainly facilitate children’s ideas. We will always finish around the campfire with s’mores.
Every Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday throughout the half terms (Except the Christmas break)
Sessions are from 9-3 but we do have the option for extended hours from 8-4 should you require it.
£6 for breakfast club (8-9)
£6 for after school (3-4)
If we have to cancel the session due to high winds we will either change the day or refund, whatever is your preference. Those needing to access us for childcare, rather than an experience, please let us know as we have limited spaces to accommodate within the house.
PVU Waterproofs (100% waterproof) – Dungarees and jacket. The dungarees give an additional layer around the core.
Lots of base layers (Cotton tops with high polo necks) & leggings. We also recommend that any under clothing doesn’t have a hood (e.g. lots of zip up tops for kids have hoods) as you can’t pull them up over a wooly hat, and if left down, they bulk up the back of the waterproof jacket reducing the reach that the waterproof hood has over the child’s head
Light fleeces or heavier fleeces (if it’s really cold children can wear down filled (puffy) jackets and/or salopettes.
We find that neoprene lined wellies are fine all year round, however those particularly prone to cold toes benefit from disposable foot warmers on colder days or by wearing snow boots.
Hats that cover ears and good quality fleece lined waterproof gloves that fit well past the wrist (not snow/padded gloves as these just get wet and soggy the first time a child touches anything)
Children will be required to wear their waterproofs throughout the summer as they may want to play in the mud and sitting on the woodland floor whilst playing. Thin long sleeve tops are a must as the mosquitos are out and could potentially bite the children and a fleece jumper as it is a lot cooler in the woods. We can always remove layers if they are hot. Children will need to have insect repellent applied prior to coming and spare in their backpack so that we can reapply. (Please apply repellent like a sun cream, just spraying it doesn’t work)
Whilst we are aware that you may not have the correct kit, please think about what you are sending your child in. We see many children come to us in the winter months, with only 1 pair of socks and leggings and a thin coat. Please wrap them up, it is easier to remove layers when they get warm.
Your children may get muddy, please do not send them in anything that you do not want to get ruined.
They will also need a backpack with enough food and drink for the day and also spare clothes in-case they get wet and muddy.
