One of the activities I have been helping with is Forest School sessions. This is an approach of specialised learning for outdoor education which offers children the opportunity to have a hands-on experience in a natural setting, developing confidence and achieving things that can’t be done in a normal classroom.
Working with a group of children was a totally new experience for me, they differ in age depending on the sessions. One is a group of 3-5-year-olds and the other 6-11-year-olds. Even though the age range isn’t that big, the experience and interaction with both sets is so different. For example, the older children are more practical and love to hold a conversation, but on the other hand, the younger group have this amazing sense of imagination and innocence which allows them to see certain things in a totally different perspective.
