School Trips to inspire young minds…

Exploration & play

In our sessions we explore the wonderful nature around us through play. We can develop a programme for specific needs and requirements to create a memorable visit that leaves a lasting and emotive connection with the woodlands. Some examples of our activities:

  • The magical world of Fairies and Elves (Nursery & Reception)
  • Shelter and Survival (KS1)
  • Life cycles in the woodland (Ks2)
