The Hive's approach focuses on innovative ways to engage pupils in Forest School in more urban environments where access to outdoor space is constrained.
Our Taster Sessions are designed to give participants a taste of the richness and creativity of Forest School learning, particularly in more urban settings.
They are open to teachers, nursery teams, youth workers and parents and are particularly suitable for individuals wanting to find out more about Forest School and/or considering embarking on Forest School Assistant or Leader training.
HOW THE SESSIONS RUN
The day is split into 4 sessions:
An introduction to the ethos and principles behind Forest School
A chance to try your hand at some of the skills: fire lighting, den building, hand tools
An outdoor lunch cooked as a group over the fire
An opportunity to have a go at woodland crafts
All sessions run from 10am to 2pm
All Taster Sessions are led by Nikki McKnight.
