Forest School Leader Skills Share DayTuesday 18th June 2024
This one day course is designed for both new and more experienced Forest School Leaders as an opportunity to get together with other leaders to share ideas and experiences, practice your practical skills and take away some new activities and games to try out with your groups. The day will be spent entirely outdoors so you need to come dressed appropriately for the weather. Steel toe capped boots are recommended in case we need to harvest materials.
During the day there will be time for you to share something that you have used successfully at Forest School with the group. This could be a resource, a game or an activity. There will also be activities on offer for you to try and time for you to work on your practical skills. These could include:
|Ropes and String
Star gazing chair
Triangles and tetrahedrons
Bows and arrows
Elder and charcoal pencils
There will be opportunities to prepare a fire to heat a kettle or light a storm kettle to make drinks or you could have a go at setting up a cooking fire and doing some campfire cooking.
