Here’s a taste of what you missed in October!

What are your children doing in the October Holidays?

We have a Forest School event in the holidays, for 5 – 11 year olds; see below.

Learn new skills, make new friends, enjoy freedom to explore in nature and most importantly have lots of fun outdoors! Here at Stroud Forest School.

Stroud Forest School is set in 5 acres of diverse secondary woodland only 15 minutes walk from the centre of Stroud, on the south side of the picturesque Slad Valley.

Kat Piper and Georgia Spooner will lead the  day.   They have put together great programmes of creative and practical skills including den building, whittling, charcoal ……. and of course fire lighting without matches!

 ” Alice thoroughly enjoyed her day at Forest School and has said she would love to go again. She particularly enjoyed all the wood carving and is very proud of her butter knife, hammer (which she has already used to crack almonds) and two prayer sticks, which she plans to decorate. Alice is a child who thrives on new challenges and Forest School successfully gave her the opportunities to stretch herself technically and creatively. She brought her sandwiches home with her saying she had been ‘too busy’ to eat – most unusual for her she loves food.”  JoJo – Mother

“Thank you so much for the day Dannish  spent with you. It boosted his confidence and he had loads of fun. He raced home to try his wooden butter knife! And can’t wait to go to forest school again. (He’s even invited a friend for next time)!!”  Anna, Mother
