What we'll do
Join us for free play in our mud kitchen, digging and craft areas. You can swing in the trees, climb on the hay bales, lay in the hammock, walk our trail, build a den or search for bugs under the log piles. We come together around the fire circle to sing and chat. We often have a book, season or celebration as our theme each week and a craft, snack or activity that will link to this. Some weeks we will also have a fire to make a drink or snack on, or just to enjoy watching the flames dance and flicker. Remember your water bottle, snack, wellies and waterproofs as our site tends to be quite wet! *Please arrive no earlier than five minutes before the start time. *Walk behind the snack van, past the football pitch and towards the trees to find us. At the football field walk behind the far goal and you will find a grass path past the boat that goes left to avoid the muddy area directly in front of our site. See the photo on the listing! NB photos will be taken at our sessions for social media. No child's name would be used in any instance. Please advise us when you arrive if you do not wish to appear in any photos. You are responsible for your own child at all times. We will set out the boundaries for our area, so please adhere to these to stay safe.
About your mentor
Rebecca at Leafy Learners
I'm happiest in nature
Many years ago I started out at agricultural college studying conservation and environmental studies with land management. Fast forward 25 years and I'm also a qualified primary school teacher and Level 3 Forest School Leader with a child of my own 2 dogs and a cat. I teach in school part time and spend the rest of the week with my son and Leafy Learners. Most recently I have renewed my first aid qualification and gained my food and hygiene certificate (aimed at cooking outdoors). I belong to the Forest School Association and regularly attend CPD events to keep up to date with forest school ideas and ways of working and learning. I've always been a lover of the outdoors and a believer that when we truly connect with nature, we begin to understand ourselves. I spend a lot of my free time outside, walking with my partner, our blended family and our dogs. We are often gardening, finding new places to explore and crafting using natural resources such as wood and fire. I enjoy cooking and trying new recipes indoors and outside on the fire. I love working with children and seeing them explore nature. Seeing them marvel at creatures under rocks, birds in the trees or tracks on the ground. Smiley little faces as they take risks, make friends and problem solve is why I do what I do and help them to walk with wonder!
