Harlequin provides forest school sessions for one day each fortnight, all year. Sessions are designed to build children's resilience, self esteem and outdoor skills, whilst always being fun, whatever the weather.
Sessions are aimed at a small group (less than 16) of children aged from 5years to 15years. We have a large forest area with an adventure playground, craft area fire circle, 2 ponds and lots and lots of space to play wide games and run around. Cool in the summer under the canopy, and warmer in winter shielded from any bitter winds, the forest is a fantastic environment all year. Children can learn as the forest grows and changes through the year. We do lots of crafts and forest skills, using axes, knives, saws and traditional woodworking methods, we even have a scratch-built pole lathe.
Each session is 4 hours. Children are not accompanied by their parents while in the forest. Sessions are alternate Fridays all year.
