Activities include:

· Nature trails

· Natural arts & crafts

· Woodland games

· Dens, shelter and furniture building

· Woodcrafts (such as making whistles, benches, toys)

· Knowledge of trees and nature

· Pioneering

· Primitive skills, tools & fires

· Fire Safety and cooking over a fire

Forest School aims to get children to enjoy the outdoors, regardless of the weather, and make the most of what nature has to offer. Even on a cold winter’s day, Forest School sessions can run, making the most of the season.

Children are taught safe techniques for using woodland tools, such as loppers and bow saws. They are often used in pairs, encouraging communication, cooperation and respect. They are also taught how to have a safe and responsible attitude towards fire, which is slowly introduced over the course of the sessions, building up to cooking food.


Both the boys and the girls have training sessions during lunchtimes in the week and follow the Swindon Schools Primary Football schedules. They have been involved in league, cup and festivals this year.
