Welcome to Monday ‘School Ready’ Tribe – we are launching this in January 2021, with Forest School Shona as the lead facilitator, along with other Forest School facilitators supporting.
Dates: 11th January – March 2021
Time: 1pm to 3pm
Cost: £60 per child per term. Sibling reductions available.
Age: 4-5 year olds (no need to be accompanied for this session)
Come and join us in our magical Kali Wood for our weekly Forest School sessions for 4-5 year olds.
These weekly sessions will offer your child a safe and explorative place to explore themselves, others and their world before heading off to school. The woods offers space for your wild one to follow their imagination and see where it takes them. They will have the run of the woods to build, design, create and craft what their vision holds, supporting development of their resilience, confidence, problem solving skills, fine and gross motor skills, independence and communication skills…all of which will go on to support and nurture your child as they enter the world of school.
We will have the community fire warming us and offering us a place for story sharing, song, hot chocolate and sharing our tales of our times in the woods. Around the fire we will have our opening and closing circle, offering an opportunity to speak words or act out in visuals what it is we would like to do, how we are feeling and what we would like to do next time in the woods. This time of listening and sharing will be an invitation for your child to be heard, hear others, and develop their communication skills.
Our sessions are inspired by what our Tribe’s children love doing and what they choose in each moment. Each session is facilitated by qualified and trainee Forest School folk and has a high adult to child ratio so that each child get’s to follow their vision for their session.
Our site is fully equipped with a compost toilet (with a view!), woodland shelter and outdoor kitchen, we play in all weathers so please send your child ‘weather ready’ to each session…think marvellous mud and wonderfully wet!
We will be following Covid safety guidelines. Please see our website for full Covid Risk Assessment.
Sessions run every Monday for 6 weeks from 1pm – 3pm, booked in advance on a half-termly basis.
We look forward to welcoming your child to the magical world the woods has waiting for them.
