Every term children undertake curriculum-linked visits to the forest. Literacy: creating a new nature trail and producing a leaflet to guide others around, responding to the poetry of The Lost Words, creating a nature alphabet. Science: planting trees and learning about how they grow and parts of a plant, looking at living and non living things in the soil, tracking wildlife footprints, using identification keys for minibeasts. History: investigating the ruined township and finding out how people used to live here. Expressive Arts: creating artworks from natural materials. Maths: experimenting with different methods of measuring tree height and calculating the age of trees. These are just a few examples! In future we hope to work on the Junior Forester Award. The ranger service also runs and contributes to holiday activities for children, adults and young people which can include the John Muir Award.
