Wrekin Forest School is an innovative approach to the outdoors, where learning is an exciting adventure offering the opportunity for girls and boys of all ages and all abilities to explore the wonders of the woodland. Forest Schools is unique in its inspirational philosophy, motivation, ethos and concept, promoting a regular opportunity to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through a hands-on outdoor learning experience in a local woodland environment. Its priority is the wellbeing of individuals both physically and psychologically.There is a basic format to each visit; boundaries, rules and health and safety issues will be reinforced. When using Forest School attendees will usually be provided with a stimulus, for example a story, song or poem, activities will then be provided to match the theme, many of the other activities will be directed by the young people themselves, these may range from bug hunting to archery, den building to woodcraft, golf frisbee to low ropes.As a qualified Primary School Teacher, Level 3 Forest School Leader and GNAS Archery Leader, this outdoor experience can be offered to children, young people and those young at heart. We pride ourselves in being able to help those of every ability to access what we have to offer, led by me, Judie and my team, as part of the core curriculum in school time, after school and holiday clubs, other clubs associated with young people, birthday parties and other celebratory opportunities, team building and end of year celebrations.All events and their activities will be planned around the participants themselves with consideration given to their age and interests.Those booking birthday parties and other celebrations will take an active part in planning their event, some ideas have been put together to get you started, so take a look at the ‘Parties’ page for more information.
