Forest School Games & Activities CPD Workshop

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
