This 1 day CPD workshop is designed to be a fun forest school day for Forest School Leaders and Assistants. It is a chance to experience some forest school activities which can be used with children. This is a great opportunity to have a session specifically about Forest School Activities and is not about completing coursework, but about using Forest School in action!
The day will provide examples of games, micro teaching sessions, crafts, nature connection and mindfulness. You will be encouraged to have fun playing games and re-engage with your inner 8 year old: it’s just as important for adults to play as it is for children! This is also a great opportunity to refresh your love of Forest School, share knowledge with your peers and skill share.
The workshop runs from 9am – 4pm
Course Cost: £35 (£25 if you are a past/present trainee)
Please can you pass on my thanks to Tally and Neil for such a lovely training session yesterday. It was really great to connect with other practitioners, share ideas and ‘experience’ the session rather than be the one leading it for a change!
It reminded me of why I fell in love with Forest School many years ago, and particularly of the huge wellbeing benefits of reconnecting with nature in a mindful way…I could have happily spent the whole session sitting at my ‘sit spot’ in the woods listening to the soundscape around me.
These sessions look easy to deliver, but I know the amount of time and preparation that goes into making them seem effortless.
The Games and Activities course was really good and run very well by Tally and Neil, it was good to be on the course with staff who work with similar learners, it was good to have a variety of active and creative ideas shown to us and also to mix up individual and group game /activities.
The course was inspiring and interactive, Tally and Neil made me feel confident enough to step outside my comfort zone and try new things without feeling self conscious.
