It was amazing! We made rope bridges, built shelters out of sticks and we did some bushcraft art. We also learnt how to light fires (which was quite hard) and to finish off Matt made popcorn on the fire and led a sing along. Everyone had so much fun!

Learning Outside the Classroom develops an understanding of the social, economic and environmental impact of our natural surroundings in children. Our expert teaching combined with a natural environment are all that’s needed to bring nature to life and for children to learn valuable life skills and increase self esteem.
With shelter building, fire lighting, bushcraft skills and more, Rural Pride Woodland sessions are packed with activities to bring children of all ages and abilities together, appreciating the sustainable role of the natural environment in our lives in the most hands-on way possible. We are accessible all year round to schools, community groups and individual parties.
Rural Pride brings life into the curriculum by providing children with motivating tasks outdoors. In fact, the learning benefits are balanced by the great sense of achievement and confidence children will take away from simply having fun!
