Woodland Adventures

The day will be an inspiring mix of exploration, bushcraft, fire lighting, and natural arts and crafts. Explore the woodland environment and learn to use tools to make things out of natural materials. Age appropriate projects will give each child something to take home with them.

Session outline

After arrival, we will “tune in” using our senses and feel a deepening connection to nature. Throughout the day we will discover the properties and possibilities of creating things from a variety of natural materials.

Whilst crafting our projects we will learn about safe tool use, discover the secrets behind effective fire lighting and embrace the joys of exploring the woods.

The detail and level will be adapted to be age appropriate. In addition, pupils will develop their team working and communication skills. All sessions are designed with holistic learning in mind and aim to develop the heart, head and hand. A culture of care and respect for ourselves, each other, and the environment are encouraged throughout.

"I just wanted to send an email to say a huge thank you for 3 wonderful Stone Age Days which have been fantastic and have really supported our History teaching. I have been teaching for almost 14 years now and I have never had staff come in and talk so enthusiastically and positively about a school trip. Your resources, delivery and support for the children is exceptional. Thank you for battling with the weather, the boggy ground and Covid; it was so lovely to be able to get the children out of the four walls of the classroom and take part in some hands on learning."

"Thanks for such a wonderful and informative day yesterday. The children loved it all and it was fantastic to see them getting so hands on. Your depth of knowledge and enthusiasm is brilliant. Exactly what we needed to inspire the children in our Stone Age topic."
