I'm happiest in nature
What we'll do
For this half term we will continue our session at the Monotype Sports and Social Club in Salfords (Old bowls area). Join us with your child (confident walkers - 5) on a forest school inspired journey. We explore the field and tree area, sing songs, go on treasure hunts, use tools, create woodland inspired crafts, listen to stories and learn about the world around us. When you arrive there will be some free-play activities set out. Feel free to mingle and chat to other parents and children, keeping a safe distance. Whilst outdoors, masks for adults are optional at our setting. Our sessions start with songs, followed by either a trail, exploration walk or another similar activity. We usually link each week to a theme, like the seasons, or a story. We read a book whilst the children have their snack and drink (provided by you) followed by a craft or related activity to finish. If you are booked into the later session, then you are welcome to bring their picnic lunch to eat at this ...

About your Mentor

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...
