These resource bags provide all you need to successfully run your own educational visit in the forest.
Each activity bag contains equipment, games and resources for a class of up to 35 children and are most suitable for children aged 4 - 11 years old.
Each bag includes enough activities for a half day session so why not hire two bags of your choice to make your own full day programme.
Choose from the following activities.
Get to know the trees intimately, by exploring them whilst blindfolded, then look more closely at their structure to identify them and understand their importance.
World War One Trench Experience
A chance to study some of our local history. Find out about the significant role that the Sherwood Pines site played in WWI, explore our reconstructed trenches and discover what life in the trenches would have been like.
Get creative and explore the forest through a variety of activities. Search for colour, shape clay sculptures and create your own forest art gallery.
A fun packed activity walk to stimulate children's senses. See, hear, touch, smell, discover and learn.
A fascinating way to study the forest as a habitat. Use pots, magnifying lenses and identification charts to get a close up look at the creatures living beneath our feet.
Delve into the depths of our fantastic wildlife pond. Use nets and simple identification keys to find out about life in this watery world.
Children will turn detective as they hunt for signs of animal life in the forest. Test their knowledge in our quiz made from clues found in our woods and spot the squirrel picnic tables.
A chance for children to learn map reading skills then test them in a safe forest environment on our specially developed course.
A great team activity. Children work together to construct sturdy shelters from forest materials. Test the structures using the ‘rain test’ and extend your activity using tarps and ropes.
From autumn eye openers looking at colours and leaves to winter survival with dopey dormouse. These activities are fun, relevant and as adaptable as the seasons!
