Outdoor Learning Sessions at LTA

Our Forest School sessions take place on a Monday morning in an enchanting nearby woodland area in Little Thetford and are open to all pre-school-aged local children (3+).


Every week during term time, we look forward to heading out to the forest and taking part in risky play, building, foraging and exploring. 


The session is run by our very own setting manager, Gemma, and our Forest School leader, Kara. Places are limited...!  We always welcome helpers and if you would like to come and join us for session then please let us know.


Activities include: 

  • Camp, den and shelter building

  • Woodland craft & natural art (using leaves, twigs, sticks)

  • Scavenger hunts and bush craft

  • Outdoor cooking

  • Making & using natural tools

  • Hunt for mini beasts 


Session Timings

Monday morning:  9.00 - 12.00 noon
