Outdoor Learning

“I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees.”

Henry David Thoreau

Little Stream’s forest school activities also use our woodland and nature reserve where children love learning from and not just in the outdoors.

Activities and expeditions are designed to give all the children opportunities to work together, problem solve, encourage independent learning and to try new things where making mistakes is all part of the process!

Shelter building, knot tying, cooking on an open fire, scavenger hunts, clambering and climbing, insect spotting, pond dipping, nature trail detective work, mud and wood craft are all tackled with great enthusiasm.   A Year 4 highlight is also a visit to the Swattenden Activity Centre for a day of team building activities – think great heights and lots of mud.
