KS1 and KS2
1/2 day
  • On arrival one of our tutors will welcome your group to the Centre and go through the schedule for the day, learning objectives and health and safety issues
  • We’ll then walk to the tranquil woods, and take a seat in the log circle where the tutor will introduce the activity. Students will get to enjoy a walk in the environment, and collect the natural colours of that season by having a go at the Artist Palette activity.
  • Re-group back at log circle to discuss and show our palettes before taking part in leaf / bark rubbing pictures
  • Time to go on a scavenger hunt and collect a range of natural materials so we can create our own pictures 
  • Next up is our ‘Boglins’ activity; gather natural materials to help construct our own clay Boglin.
  • Then it’s time to head back to the centre
