Fireflies Forest school is a new forest School which is based at Hinchingbrooke Country Park. We feel passionate that children should be immersed in the outdoors and connect with nature as much as possible. We run sessions on a Friday morning, in the school holidays and also offer Birthday parties! We hope to run sessions after school too very soon.
Additional to forest school training we both have a wealth of experience working with children and young adults with Autism, various mental health conditions and challenging behaviour. We welcome children with additional needs to all of our sessions, however if you feel your child may cope better in a smaller session we will also run sessions which are for only 8 children also.
We have lots of different dates over July and August, with some in the morning, some int he afternoon and even an early evening session! We also have a small group of just 8 so that children with additional needs or who struggle in large groups can access a forest school session .
The session will start up at the banner in the car park where we will meet you all and walk down to our site together. We will start at the log circle and end at the log circle. Everything else in between is up to the children! We will have some natural craft activities available as well as den building, fire lighting, tool use, hammocks and rope play and some games to play. We will end the session with a little mindfulness and singing.
Please book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
This group is perfect for all ages, we will meet every Friday in the car park at Hinchingbrooke Country Park and walk down together to our log circle. The session will follow the forest school principles and may involve learning to use tools, lighting a fire, climbing trees, playing games, creating crafts, cooking, building, and getting muddy! But most of all having lots of fun! These sessions are for children of all ages.
This is a forest school session for up to 8 children. Our main goal is to ensure that all children can access forest school. Therefore we want to ensure the children who may need a smaller group can also come to our sessions!
This session will also include snacks cooked on the fire!
