ARC facilitate schools and other groups of children to visit Foundry Wood. We offer a variety of activities including curriculum-based sessions, Forest School sessions, craft activities and environmental education.
An Education Pack is also provided with information for parents, teachers and children about the visit, a risk assessment for on-site activities and suggested pre- and post-visit classroom activities. We have packs for Early years, Key stage 1, Key stage 2 and After School groups.
Example sessions include mini-bug hunts, crafts and cooking activities (e.g. pizza making in the woodland pizza oven) suitable for after school groups such as brownies, guides, cubs, scouts, etc.
These sessions are delivered by a Forest School trained facilitator with teaching experience. Charges for sessions are based on group size and session duration.
You can find out more on the Foundry Wood Education page or contact firstname.lastname@example.org / email@example.com to discuss bespoke services for your group
We are grateful to the Heritage Lottery Fund for supporting the development and initial roll out of the Education Project in 2014.
