Forest Schools Education with Teamplay Outdoor Activities.
Forest Schools Derbyshire – Our outdoor school in a forest environment
Our woodland adventures are designed to ignite the imagination of children. Also exposing them to the countryside’s natural beauty and learn about aspects of nature and geography. Let them track badgers, spot woodpeckers or follow a natural stream.
Our 9 acres of tranquil private natural woodland is located in the heart of Derbyshire. This provides Forest Schools Derbyshire with all or learning resources. Our woodland adventures also offer a plethora of learning possibilities. From spotting wildlife to stream walking. Also woodland crafts, shelter building and outdoor cooking. It is often referred to as quite a magical location.
Many schools are embracing the forest schools’ philosophy of outdoor learning and the benefits of free learning. We can offer that environment with our unique woodland adventures. All our instructors have many years expereince in delivering this type of activity. We are there to help you enrich your childrens understanding of the natural environment. Also the benefits it adds to their educational needs.
Let’s go on a Bear Hunt
Let’s wade through the swishy swashy stream. Stumble trip through the trees and squelch into the boggy mud. Then forage for clues of animals that live in the woods. Along the way, you might see some of the bear’s woodland friends. Also hidden in locations the friendly bear may also have left you some clues and facts about himself. This lovely woodland bear hunt follows the story whilst taking in the sights and smells all around you. Children are encouraged to bring along their own teddy bears and have a teddy bear picnic.
Is there Room on the Broom?
A wonderfully, witchy treat that sees the woodland through the eyes of Julia Donaldson’s story. Look hard and you may find her hat, her bow, or even some of her friends. As we arrive at a central point within the woodland we will prepare to make our own magnificent broom. Also make some witchy potions and listen to stories. This fabulously entertaining journey through the woodland really brings the story to life. Also it can help the children to use what they can find in the woods to create something magical.
Weirdly, Wonderful Woodland Witchcraft
A scavenger hunt through the woodland. Wading through streams and clambering over trees. Finding signs of bats, owls, and other woodland creatures. Den building, making natural jewelry and creating a piece of woodland art. The activities can also include creating potions and poetry inspired by our surroundings.
Back to Nature
A guided walk throughout the woodland provides a great insight into Geography and Biology. Here you discover plants and trees. Also see unusual birds nesting and see first-hand how meandering water carves out its own path. There are some fascinating finds that change all year round giving you endless possibilities to study the changing seasons too. Many activities are available and can be discussed at the time of booking.
Woodland Assault Course
Rather than simply rambling through the wood, you could make it a little more of a physical challenge as we have designed, let’s say, a more adventurous route. For instance it involves climbing, balancing and maybe the odd height challenge or wet experience. Great fun and possibly more Peter Pan than Iron Man!
A fantastic way of learning the traditional sport of Archery in a natural setting. As you wander through the woodland you spot targets, aim, and shoot. All Archery is conducted with qualified instructors with many years of experience. The woodland environment makes it such a memorable experience.
