Woodland School

  • {image_caption}

Forest School originated in Denmark with the idea of encouraging and inspiring children through positive outdoor experiences.

We run a programme of outdoor learning and woodland school experiences for children aged 3-5 years old going into the ‘big garden’ woodland area. Children have the opportunity to climb and explore trees, tell stories, make trails, build dens and hunt for mini-beasts together.

Woodland School gives children an understanding of the natural environment, how to use their own initiative to solve problems, how to co-operate with their friends and appreciate the value of the world around us.

Glebe Farm has two acres of meadow and woods for children to explore. They have the freedom and space to venture beyond in safety. Given the opportunity, children will discover wonder and excitement outdoors. When children become adults, they won’t remember the days sat indoors watching tv, but will have fond memories of climbing trees, making dens and playing hide and seek. The children are actively involved in scavenger hunts,wild weaving, mud art, making twig sculptures, making dens and lighting fires. Don’t be alarmed! Children take the responsibility very seriously and all activities are thoroughly risk assessed.
