Friday Forest School at Rainton Meadows is an inspirational process, that offers ALL learners weekly opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in our woodland habitat.
For all outdoor explorers aged 5- 10, come and spend your mornings out in the woods playing games, creating woodland art, building dens, learning to use tools, campfire cooking and having fun together. Each session will be different but will use skills and knowledge learned during the previous Forest School sessions.
We will meet at Rainton Meadows at 10am, and will be in the woodland until 12pm, each child must be accompanied by an adult. There will be fruit and drinks provided during a mid-morning snack. All sessions will be outdoors so children should come with plenty warm, waterproof clothes and wellie boots. Booking is essential, as there is a maximum group number of 12 children per session. Sessions can be booked individually for £6 per child, or all six sessions can be booked in advance at £5 per session (book five get the sixth session free). There will also be an additional Christmas Celebration session on Friday 20th December, which can be booked separately.
