Fernee Forest Club Sessions

AT Bevendean Community Garden & Woods


Our popular session for little ones

So what happens at the Young Explorers sessions on Fridays?
Last session : We did yoga tree poses under the trees. We made and followed trails and tracks. We noticed branches brought down by the storms and leaf skeletons scattered around. We found a fox skeleton, investigated, asked questions about life, death, how a fox knows it's a fox and also evolution and cells and spines! We made lemon balm tea using a kelly kettle and drew foxes with pastels, did the oke cokey to finish and planned popcorn for next time!
These sessions are very relaxed. We bring some nature based activities, some loose parts like tarps and ropes and a bit of a plan but the session evolves to respond to the space, the weather, the children's interests and needs that day. This is what's great about forest school. We explore, that's for certain. The children learn, while having fun; at their own pace. Their confidence grows.The adults relax and feel the benefits of being in the woods, surrounded by greenery, having quality time.. :)
