Alternatively, if you have your own woodland, arrangements can be made for the experience to take place there if desired.
The experiences are based on a story book of your choice. This could be a story being used in class or one that compliments a topic.
The experiences are designed to spark the children’s imaginations, nurture their curiosity and generate a plethora of ideas and enthusiasm!
The Story Book Experiences take place either in the morning between 9.30am and 11.30am, or in the afternoon between 1pm and 3pm. (Timings can be adjusted slightly if necessary). The maximum number of children for each experience is 15, so usually a class is split, with one group taking part in the morning and the other in the afternoon.
A minimum of one teacher and two other adults (this can be parents) are required.
Fish in a Tree can help with transport arrangements and a letter to parents if required.
The Story Book Experiences cost £100 per group ( £6.60 per child).
‘Thank you for such a fantastic day! Each group returned from the woods bursting with enthusiasm and ideas! The activities you delivered were original and fun, and fully supported what we were doing back in class; these experiences will stay in the children’s memories for a very long time…and in mine!’
