New Forest School Leader Skills Development DayTuesday 15th June or Wednesday 10th November 2021
This one day course is designed for new and more experienced Forest School Leaders who would like an opportunity to practice their skills, learn some new activities and games and share ideas with other practitioners. The day will be spent entirely outdoors so participants 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 the opportunity to do various activities/ skills development which will be learner led but supported by the course leader. These could include:
|Ropes and String||Craft|
Star gazing chair
Triangles and tetrahedrons
Bows and arrows
Elder and charcoal pencils
There will be opportunities in the morning and afternoon to prepare a fire to heat a kettle or light a storm kettle to make drinks. Towards the end of the morning you could have a go at setting up a cooking fire and doing some campfire cooking. Throughout the day we will play some games that you may want to share with your groups.
