Forest School for 6 – 12 yr olds
Year round Forest School in Cornwall – whatever the weather!
Wild Thymes Saturday Club usually runs twice a month during term time as well as holiday events throughout August. Set in beautiful woods near Falmouth and Penryn, Cornwall.
Sessions offer a mix of free-play, learning how to use tools, fire lighting and campfire cooking, den building, games, natural and traditional crafts, plant and animal IDing and tracking plus exploring the beautiful private woodland full of native trees and exotic species brought back by Victorian plant hunters. We follow the seasons with our activities and use natural resources to fire the imagination.
Children that attend sessions regularly grow enormously in self-confidence and resilience. They learn new skills including how to use tools safely and choose natural resources effectively to make crafts, become confident in setting, lighting and safely managing fires, using their creativity to develop new games, learning how to cook on a campfire and trying new and delicious foods as well as develop interests and knowledge of the natural world.
With space and time to challenge themselves and develop their own sense of identity, values beliefs and social skills.
Sessions are led by Sally Jones who is a qualified Forest School Leader with enhanced DBS, Outdoor First Aid and Food Hygiene training. All activities are covered by insurance.
