A SUMMARY

*Our concluding session would normally be a full day on the last weekend of term, but due to that landing on a Bank Holiday weekend, we have moved the full day session forward!* At this session, we are going to go to the deeper levels of nature connection and outdoor skills that cannot be learnt in an hour session, or in a day, or even a week. This is about long term change, learning new skills/awareness when the children are ready, unlike traditional teaching methods. Here, we follow the children's interests and curiosities.

Seeking Wild is comprised of Reece Allen and Lydia Crook, along with other occasional skilled and passionate mentors who believe in the philosophy of Seeking Wild.

As well as being a qualified Forest School Leader, I am passionately deeping my knowledge and skills in other disciplines. Such as Bushcraft, Natural Movement and Nature Connection, through workshops, mentors and self study. What I love most is exposing children to new...

Learning aims

Develop a deeper understanding and connection to the natural world.

Strengths to develop

Our site is located in an old quarry, which has been left for the last 40ish years. The complexity of this wild environment will require the children to use their whole body to move through it. From physical strength to spatial awareness.
