Woodland Wonders

By Support - September 12th, 2022 | Posted in News

Woodland Wonders is a therapeutic intervention we use at Carew which allows students to access active learning in the outdoors. Students learn through what they do, through what they encounter and through what they discover. This supports the development of healthy and active lifestyles by offering students opportunities for physical activity, freedom and movement, and promoting a sense of well-being. We use nature as an inspiration or starting point for a lesson.

Woodland wonders offers a range of activities from; reading books, looking at animals, discovering different insects and wildlife. We create a safe, nurturing environment for students to learn different aspects of life, they may not be able to get inside a classroom. It creates a calm environment for our students to learn lots of different topics whilst outside.

Our ultimate aim is to teach and nurture students though a range of activities and as a result they learn independence and team building skills.

Woodland Wonders is focusing on the Lower school this year but older students who we feel would benefit will be considered.
