Sally came highly recommended as a Forest School instructor and we were not disappointed.
As we approached the wood the children didn't know where to look first! The activities laid out in front of us looked so exciting!
We started with a safety talk and boundaries were made clear with blue rope. I knew that the children would be safe.
To get us in the mood Sally organised a couple of games. The children were then left to explore the activities provided...Den building, minibeast hunting and identification, mud kitchen and spinners/ jewellery making from wooden cookies. These kept them really busy and challenged. The older children were able to find and cut their own wood to make their own spinners and jewellery. The little ones loved washing up the mud kitchen at the end!
We then came back together to make "Smaws" over a fire which the children couldn't resist.
We ended with a group time in which the children were able to share their favourite moments.
We had all enjoyed our time with Sally, the children leaving the forest full of chat and enthusiasm.
Sally ran a fantastic session for us at The Sticky Bun Play Cafe and we received some great feedback from our customers! Very professional, friendly and fun service!
I just wanted to let you know Oliver had a great day today, he really enjoyed it ‘best day ever’ was his description!The boys chatted all the way home about what they had done and it sounds as though they had the opportunity to do lots of things.
Absolutely fantastic...Freddie had a wonderful time, I would highly recommend it.
Sam (age 6) attended the Sunday club sessions and a day session in half term. He absolutely loved it being out in the woods, exploring and learning new skills. It’s a perfect way to keep an active, inquisitive boy engaged. Sally is brilliant with the children. I recommend her highly 😊
I took my grandson Trysten for an afternoon in the February break and he absolutely loved it. He especially enjoyed sawing a piece of wood and toasting marshmallows and keeps asking me when he can go again. I will definitely book again with Sally when he comes to visit me next holidays. Many thanks
Lucas (age 5) says it was "fantastic and amazing! I loved roasting marshmallows, making bread and turning it into toast over the fire and learning to make fires and knots." Sally does a wonderful job at engaging the children and nurturing their love of the outdoors. We can't recommend her highly enough!
George had a fantastic day today. He said making his first bread stick was the best. Thank you so much for his best day off the school holidays x
Harry had such an amazing time at forest school, hasn’t stopped talking about it!!! Came home with some fab things he made all by himself, very proud of himself. Will definitely be booking again for the next school holidays.
Thank you Sally for doing such an amazing job looking after Rufus (3) & his cousins on their first day at forest school!! He Loved his time playing hide & seek, making camp fires, carving sticks & so much more! Will def be booking him on again.
I’d like to say a huge THANK YOU to Sally and her team for giving my two boys, Thomas (8) and Oliver (6) such a fantastic week at Forest School!
Every day, whatever the weather, they came back smiling from ear to ear eager to tell me about their adventures, then they wanted to go straight outside and keep practising the new skills they had learned that day, desperate for the next days session to come more quickly.
Sally, your enthusiasm for each child’s learning journey is awesome, you’ve definitely lit the blue touch paper in these two – thank you.
Can’t wait till FS in September!
Not only did the course undertaken by our little man give him a chance for some amazing father and son bonding but it gave him fantastic self confidence, based on the fact that he can do things for himself. We cannot recommend you highly enough, thank you.
Alex loved forest schools and is going back for more! It’s a fabulous way to learn and Sally Wolff is an excellent, experienced teacher who puts the children at the heart of everything she does with amazing enthusiasm.
Alex has looked forwards to his Monday after-school Forest Schools for the last 6weeks (even the afternoon where the rain went sideways)- tonight I can see why; spot on organisation & teaching, a confidence building experience, engaging all present and the best way I can imagine of learning ‘life skills’ so difficult in a conventional class room – what a fun way to spend an afternoon – thank you
Excellent teacher, very warm and knowledgable. Highly recommend.
My son loves being outdoors so to combine that with learning is a perfect combination. Great skills to have growing up.
Amazing teacher … Charlie loves forest school he enjoys hands on learning this is perfect for charlie
