Outdoor Education - Bright Woods Forest School

Outdoor Education

Here, at Bright Woods Forest School CIC, we feel that even short-term exposure to the natural environment is important, therefore in addition to our Forest School programmes we also offer tailor made sessions that directly contribute to learning outcomes in the National Curriculum.

For example:

  • Put a STEM project in to practice
  • Inspire a piece of writing for English
  • Provide outdoor and adventurous activity for Physical Education
  • Bring Geography and Scientific research to life in the nature reserve

The opportunities are endless and with our combined experience as outdoor learning practitioners and primary school teachers we are confident that we can provide you with an experience that the school, staff and the children will benefit from.

Example activities include: habitat walks, river-dipping, mini-beast hunts, study into plants and animals of the local area, dinosaur digs, map reading, investigation of water properties and story-telling. Bring Geography and Scientific research to life in the nature reserve

We highly recommend making a full day out of your visit, where you have a Curriculum structured session in the morning and Forest School inspired activities in the afternoon. This has proven to consolidate the learning experience that the children will remember and talk about for many days after.

We require that the children come supervised. We recommend 1:4 adult to child ratio and require a minimum of 1:5 ratio.

Our sessions are either half a day (2-3 hours morning or afternoon) or a full day (4-5 hours).

Guide Price:

  • Half a day (morning or afternoon) – £150
  • Full day – £250

Please note that the prices are for guidance only. They may vary depending on the type of session, location, materials used and a length of each project.

Testimonies:

“We… had a fantastic time. Spent the day hunting for minibeasts in and out of the water, making clay creatures, toasting marshmallows, hot chocolate, and den building, then testing them with a water bucket challenge. Thanks to both of you for making the day so enjoyable for our whole school, from Nursery to Year 6.”
