About the event

3-5 year-olds have the chance to join us every Wednesday of the Spring term for two hours of bushcraft, pond-dipping, fire-lighting, cooking, shelter building, outdoor crafts and exploring the site. Snacks are included. Our first session is 3rd January , will break for two weeks at Easter and our final session will be on 23rd March.

The sessions take place in our outdoor classroom and in the forest school copse as well as nature walks around site. These are unaccompanied sessions but we do ask that parents/carers remain on-site to assist with toileting if necessary. There will be a maximum of 8 children per session and a minimum of three adults; two trained London Wildlife Trust staff and at least one of our wonderful volunteers.

Our Outdoor Learning Activities Risk Assessment and additional Covid-19 Risk Assessment are available here:
