What do I wear?
All children are different and your child may get cold easily and therefore require more layers. Please go with what is right for your child but remember that it is better to have too many clothes than not enough. It is important that all participants (children and adults) are suitably dressed for Forest School. Otherwise, they will feel uncomfortable and miserable and are unlikely to enjoy the experience. It is recommended that long sleeves and long trousers are worn throughout the year to provide protection against sunburn, bites, stings and ticks. Layers are the best idea as temperatures and conditions can change significantly during a session.
When taking part in Forest School activities it is always important to keep yourself safe. Below is a variety of safety equipment that will be supplied during Forest School sessions.
