Forest School Testimonials


Thank you for the day on Saturday. I left feeling very excited about this being a path I would like to explore further. I particularly enjoyed the chance to experience finding firewood, fire lighting and making the beads. I thought Gemma had a really approachable style to her leadership of the day and I enjoyed her enthusiastic personal tips and facts she shared through the day.

I would like to say a massive thank you for last Saturday. I truly had an amazing day and I really want to become level 3 trained. It’s clear you're so passionate about what you do.

This week has been great. I've become so much more confident, as the week has gone on. I still feel I need more practice myself with the fire before doing it with the kids, but as you say, it's about getting them to follow the routine and fire safety rules first, before introducing the real fire. We can build up, week to week.

It's been great. We've got so many ideas now for our forest school and the site. Before this week I wasn't really involved in the Forest School site, I used to take the children up there sometimes but I didn't really know what to do with them there. It's really opened my eyes to the possibilities, it's been really good.

I really enjoyed the weaving, it's quite therapeutic isn't it. I could see the kids sitting round the fire enjoying this activity.
