The forest is home to very many plants and animals. In this introduction to habitats and food chains, discover what jobs the mini-beasts do in the woods, where they like to live (micro-habitats) and what they like to eat – or what eats them! Big Forest Bug Hunt KS1 info

Writing the Woodland

First, we follow the dormouse’s story as we travel from tree to tree. Then, by becoming part of a ‘living tree’ and using the objects they find around them, children conjure up characters and ideas to create and perform their own narratives.  Writing the Woodland info


Woodland Wonders

Many city children rarely get the opportunity to experience a truly wild woodland habitat. This programme immerses them in the nature of Leigh Woods through a wide range of sensory games and activities, enabling them to return to school armed with new ideas, new vocabulary and a deeper understanding of the natural world.

Team Building

Engage the class in imaginative activities to encourage and improve team work, problem solving and collaborative thinking. Typical challenges include: learning to trust your partner as you are guided around the woods to play ‘hug a tree’; building a shelter out of natural materials that is big enough for the team to fit inside, camouflaged and waterproof; decorating a ‘magic wand’ with natural finds and creating a secret trail through the woods for others to follow. Team Building info


Cost : Half day – £4.80 (+VAT) per child, with accompanying adults free of charge
