What do we do at Forest Bugs Sessions?
A usual Session follows as: Introduction & Safety Brief – Play – Learn – Play – Review & Close Introduction & Safety Briefing
As our activities are outdoors and involve experiences which some may not yet have come across, it is important that we begin each session by meeting each other to consider our safety and health as well as the environment in which we are to play and learn.
Play & Learn
Forest Bugs is based on the Participant-Led learning philosophies used in Forest School. The practice relies on the Leaders’ observation of the Participants’ natural curiosities and interests to engage them and then build on those for the most effective learning. Self-exploration of their own, self-motivated inquisitiveness is therefore strongly encouraged during Sessions. The Leader will support unstructured Session activities by making available simple, general resources for the participants to discover and explore. This may include the provision of natural small parts like pinecones, conkers, leaves, sticks, string, water alongside basic outdoor kit like tarpaulins and rope. The Leader will also provide structured activities in Sessions which may include: outdoor games, shelter building, the creation of natural arts & crafts, plant & animal identification activities like treasure & scavenger hunts, tool use, woodland crafting and fire building, cooking & extinguishing. Our Sessions deliver experiential personal development as well as an education in woodland skills and knowledge.
Review & Close
