Forest School Activities

Forest School days at Lymley Wood include:

  • a welcome session to get to know each other and understand the health safety in the woods,  

  • a familiarisation walk around the site noticing seasonal changes and features (think Autumn leaves, summer butterflies) 

  • art and creative activity

  • bugs and animals activity

  • adventure playground time – low ropes and climbing

  • free play

  • team games

  • campfire and snacks


Periods of activity and play are balanced with quieter times for rest, stories and songs. These mornings can provide valuable support for parents and carers who come away feeling nurtured and refreshed and with happy and slightly muddy kids! 

Sessions for under 5's are parents ‘Stay and Play’ older children can be dropped of and collected for their sessions. Specific seasonal sessions and themed sessions also run, see events calendar for details.


Forest School sessions can be organised for groups e.g. home educated or un-schooled children on request.
