What to Expect

The Early Birds group at Wild Wood Bristol Forest School is a great way for slightly younger pre-school aged children (18 months and above) with their parents or carers in tow, to have the opportunity to play, explore and investigate the wonders of this beautiful woodland in the company of other families. For many younger children this may well be their first encounter with a vast and differing woodland envionment. Attending the sessions the children gain a first-hand experience of nature, weather and seasonality. Sessions excourage the children to explore the undulating site, become more familar with woodland plants and animals and play socially with others in the group. Throughout the term, children grow in confidence and independence as they become more familar with the site and the group's routines. Though each session has a planned theme, ultimately the sessions respond to the children's interests and their enquiries. Familar activities help the children to follow their own interests, may it be playing in the den, cooking up a mud cake in the woodland kitchen, or searching the site during a scavenger hunt. Stream activities and opportunites to use tools help the children to develop their fine and gross motor skills. Cooking over the campfire is something that sets this Forest School apart. Each session includes making something new over the campfire. Familar favourites include smores, popcorn, apple and black berry crumble, scones and vegetable fritters.
