Learn more about Wood and the Forest with Stickman and our Tutor Rangers in this one hour slot.
This session is designed specially for Early years and KS1 to complement the public Stickman Trail so that children can visit this with their families another time.
Whinlatter is the ideal venue for first ventures into the wild. Children can immediately enter the world of the woods, although within metres there are all the amenities of the Visitor Centre
Paths and trails criss-cross the slopes behind giving ample opportunity for an environmental adventure without ever being too far from toilets and shelter.
Our Ranger led Sessions for KS1 and Early Years cater to their level both in delivery and in length of each activity, ensuring the children get hands-on experiences whilst with us and develop a wonder for nature to take home with them.
Just tell us about your theme and we can advise how we can build in learning, play and fun in the Forest.
Some Programmes that Teachers and Leaders have requested recently include:
Mini-creature safari We use our knowledge and expertise to search for the un-noticed creatures of the World. We visit our specially constructed mini-creature hotels to look for the small creatures of the land and then dip in the pond to find creatures in the water.
Habitats – Exploring the varied Forest habitat and the animals that live in it
Using our senses – bird song, plant scents, tree hugs and the blindfold trail.
Growing in Springtime – seed to tree, and egg to osprey
Tree Story – taking your children’s favourite woodland fairy tale and enhancing it with an understanding the forest animals and environment
Finding your way -tracks, trails and some orienteering skills.
