Early years

These sessions provide many opportunities for children to display the ‘effective learning characteristics’ outlined in the EYFS Handbook 2017 – playing and exploring, active learning, creating and thinking critically.  We can also adapt many of our Key Stage 1 and 2 sessions for EYFS.

‘We loved every minute!’ Tredworth Infant School

 

NEW! Forest School Taster

Explore our new Forest Camp and take part in a variety of activities designed to develop confidence, teamwork and physical skills.  Activities can tie into literacy using stories and fairytales you’re reading together, help develop communication, or explore the senses…  just let us know your objectives! 

NEW! Changing Seasons

Book two complementary sessions, exploring the changing seasons at Wild Place:  Visit us in autumn/winter to discover how wildlife survives cold weather, then return in spring as the woods and meadows come to life.  See our new seasonal visit discount for more information!

Minibeast Detectives & Minibeast Den-building

Children find out about woodland habitats by playing an exciting game in the meadow before going on a minibeast hunt. As part of their investigation, children get to grips with using bug pots, magnifying glasses, identification charts and other essentials. Sessions finish with the opportunity to handle some of our special minibeasts! (Subject to availability.)


Wildly Creative

Children explore colours, patterns and textures in nature, and are inspired by the forest around them to create natural artworks and decorations. 


Wild Storytime and Crafts

Children enjoy an enchanting wildlife-themed story outdoors or in, then use it as inspiration to explore the woodland and create wild works of art or an animal habitat.

Teddy Bears’ Picnic

A classic story inspires learning about woodland animals, fun outdoor games such as find-the-bear and finally a teddy bears’ picnic on our beautiful Tower Meadow. Please ask children to bring their teddies and their usual snack for the picnic.
*This session is available from April to July only.
