Our Focus for the Evening:

The autumn term network will be held outdoors and offers you an opportunity to explore the ancient woodland at night with a group of like-minded professionals.  We will light a fire, toast marshmallows, keep the ‘Kelly Kettle’ boiling and use the natural resources available to create inspiring Forest School experiences that can be recreated in your setting.  Please be prepared to share your skills and learn from others!

There is not any parking available at the woodlands.  Heather Jebb, Early Years Adviser (Forest School), will meet you in Grafham village and we will walk to the woodlands (approximately 8 minutes) together.  Details of where to park and meeting point will be forwarded to you. 

Many thanks to Ian Henderson who will be hosting the evening.
