Wild Minds is able to deliver a wide range of environmental sessions, not only to cover areas of the curriculum but, to also support your children in connecting with nature. Experiences can be developed to meet the requirements of your setting, whether that be in a green space or more urban environment.
Wild Workshops are Forest School style activities, focused on connecting children with nature through exploration and hands-on learning. We recommend that Wild Workshops take place over six half-day visits (once per week ideally) and take place in a nearby woodland site agreed with each school or in the school grounds if suitable.
Wild Workshops cover a variety of themes depending on the time of year and if you have any particular curriculum or grounds needs we can support with those also. Activities include, but are not limited to:
- Survival and basic bushcraft skills (including fire lighting demonstration and shelter building)
- Nature’s art
- Sensory walks and natural connections
- The confidence to be me: Team Building and exploring strengths and weaknesses
- Mud, Mud Mud!
- Observing and understanding wildlife (adaptations and survival)
- Environmental Awareness and Conservation
- Predator & Prey
- Scavenger Hunts
- Skills For Life
- Sounds of Nature
Wild Workshops work best with a maximum of 30 children, last for 1 hour and we recommend 6 sessions (either 1 per half term to cover the seasons or 1 a week for 6 weeks to gain in depth knowledge, build confidence and raise self-esteem – £350 FOR 6 SESSIONS (That’s less than £2 per child!)
Alternatively, sessions can be booked as a one off, selecting from our wide and varied range of activities. These sessions, again are for a maximum of 30 children, last for 1 hour and cost £60
Adults are expected to remain with their class in order to cover ratios and health and safety requirements.
Reductions can be offered for smaller groups.
