Lighting your own fire
We offer many varied experiences …
Over the coming years as part of the planned woodland management we will identify flora and fauna in order to preserve and improve the area. We use the managed woodland materials, knotted and lashed together with rope and/or twine to make swings, walkways, shelters, dens, furniture and decorations, anything the children wish for. Sessions also include games, story-telling, creative art and drama. Aided by regular reviews and reflection, your child will feel happy and relaxed in the knowledge that they can follow their own pathway, in their own time, at any point in any session. We offer many and varied experiences ….
Health & Safety
Using a ‘whacker’!
Health & Safety
We take the children’s health and safety seriously at Join the Dots Forest School. Appropriate DBS checks have been carried out, at least one member of staff has a relevant first aid qualification. Emergency procedures, such as this Bothy Bag inflation are practiced in a calm enjoyable manner.
Shelter and den building
Everyone loves den building erecting a shelter in order to be protected from weather.
Everyone loves a fire, singing, chatting or cooking around it, it is a great experience to create a sense of community. We provide the food although the children are encouraged to bring something to share and talk about.
The scope of a rope cannot be denied! Toddlers to teenagers enjoy many aspects of their use; climbing, throwing, skipping, walkways, teamwork games, shelter erection amongst many more.
Enjoy the heat.
Thinking and remembering
Our aim over the next three years is to conserve and improve the existing natural biodiversity found on Great Wymondley Recreation ground. We identify the fascinating natural biodiversity that exists there through games, story-telling, creative art and drama experiences.
We use the managed woodland materials for review and reflection as an aid to deeper learning. Children are invited to create collage, sculpture, music, drama using themselves any natural materials that can find to remind them of what they have done during the session.
