"I found the ‘Fire and Pedagogy’ module really clear and informative with very useful, interesting videos.

It was good to see the practical process of collecting wood, preparing the site, lighting a fire and extinguishing it, in an instructive, enjoyable progression of making a fire with a group in different ways. Marina shared her wonderful enthusiasm and passion for the outdoor world in the videos and sent a clear message that whilst making fires is fun and exciting, we need to respect fire as a natural wonder, embracing and connecting with this and also taking care of our world and how we leave our trail behind us."

"The course was great, very simple to use and really informative. The course module gives individuals the confidence and clear safety guidelines to equip you to just get outdoors and enjoy nature in a fun and engaging way."

“The Cooking with Fire Module was such a wonderful training for anyone wanting to gain confidence with cooking outdoors with young children. The videos were easy to follow with top tips, health and safety reminders and ways to cook quickly and effectively with young learners. All the recipes looked very tasty too - I particularly loved the flapjacks wrapped in leaf parcels and the popcorn fairy cups! In my opinion this is great training, affordable and brilliant for anyone wanting a refresher, new ideas or to develop their confidence with working outdoors with groups of children. I will definitely be purchasing further modules to gain more knowledge from Marina's extensive outdoor experience”

Sample Lessons from the Forest School Activities Online Course

Using Knives

In this lesson you will learn how to use secateurs and knives for some simple whittling. We will take another look at the ratios you may need to think about when using knives and other tools with children as well as revisiting some typical woods for whittling. We will also show you some clips from our ‘knife protocol’.

Fox Walking Game

Many of the games we enjoy enable a group to develop their natural senses and begin to increase their self and nature awareness. Fox walking, a way of walking that derives from watching and learning from predators like the fox, provides a skill to walk slowly and quietly through the woods.

How to make a Wooden Mallet

This activity teaches many useful skills from using the saw to knife work. It can be done with all ages, as long as we apply the different methods of using tools from the other videos.
