SUMMER FOREST SCHOOL
Monday 5th, 12th & 19th August (10.30 – 12.00)
Tuesday 6th, 13th, & 20th August (10.30 – 12.00)
Join us at Mini Meadows Farm during August for our three-week Summer Holiday Forest School. Let your imagination run with our activities based on The Very Hungry Caterpillar story – go on a food treasure hunt, help make the big bug hotel, go bug hunting and get crafty making a caterpillar or butterfly. Get creative with activities based on The Stick Man story – make stick people and animals, and even build little houses for them using what you can find around the farm! Other activities will include making pom poms, cloth printing, making small boats to race on the water, bubble wands, pebble painting and shadow drawing, plus of course getting messy with some squelchy mud.
Although the sessions are planned, they are child led and therefore subject to change as the children develop the activities themselves. It is strongly encouraged that adults join in with their children to get the most out of the sessions. All sessions will end with a snack for the children and a story either around the campfire or in our forest school bell tent.
The sessions start at 10.30am and will last approximately 1hr30m, suitable for children aged 2-5 years. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Under-twos are welcome to come along free of charge, but please note the activities will be aimed at pre-school children who will need their adult to join in with them.
Tickets are £30 per child (over two years) and £15 per adult (season ticket holder adults free), and includes all three sessions on your chosen day (either Mondays or Tuesdays), plus entry to the farm park and Treetops indoor play area on the days you are at the farm for Forest School.
The session will be run by a DBS checked qualified primary school teacher with level 3 forest school leader qualification and experience, current outdoor first aid, paediatric first aid and first aid at work certificates.
