What we'll do
We will look some simple but effective techniques with a variety of equipment and ropes these will include hanging hammocks and scramble nets safely, but easily with quick to learn techniques. We will also look at techniques to complete simple but effective Rope bridges. Additionally, the knots and hitches required to complete wooden ladders and rope ladders. Not sure how to get high lines for canopies and tarps into the branches? We will practice this too. And then how do we get some of this equipment down? We will also be looking at easy methods for extraction.
About your mentor
Adrian Goodhand
Forest School Practitioner, Trainer & IQA
I have been practising Forest School since 2010 and delivering Forest School Training since 2014 across Southern England. I have over 20 years of environmental education experience. My tutoring experience doesn't stop at Forest School - I am also a qualified First Aid trainer and has tutored a range of outdoor and sport qualifications. I am passionate about Forest School - Forest School. It was a life changing approach to educating and engaging with the outdoors through a learner led approach and investigative in design rather than traditional learning styles in outdoor education. My own Forest School company (Coast and Forest Education) and previously sat on the Forest School Association (FSA) board. My particular specialities are working with groups with special education needs on a long-term basis and sharing knowledge and skills on the importance of physical play in childhood. I take great delight from seeing individuals grow.
