Welcome to huathe!
Welcome to our website.
The training season is in full swing! Join us in Cambridgeshire, County Armagh, or Lincoln to train as a Forest School leader.
We are back to running camps, nature days - with a 10th anniversary nature camp 22-26 September - and singing days - 4 new dates!! We count ourselves lucky to have been involved, despite the pandemic, in some of the most heartful work we have ever done. Our Forest School training in Co. Armagh as part of the Northern Ireland Peace Process was very special to us and showed us the beauty of Loch Neagh. A second round of the Cambridgeshire County Council Tall Trees project sees us working to embed Forest School right through to Year 6 in 6 more primary schools.
The restrictions have led us to revisit the shape of our training. We are proud that our Forest School training is all outdoors and face to face giving you the richest training experience we can to set you up for your own Forest School work. We are now able to support and reinforce this outdoor delivery with talks that our students can visit in their self-led study time. Have a look here to find out about our Forest School training.
If you are new to Forest School, the Forest School Association have a new booklet out: https://www.forestschoolassociation.org/how-to-set-up-a-forest-school-from-the-roots-up/
If you would like to host a training for us, give Carol or Elizabeth a call.
We continue to be in discussion with our colleagues in China to design a suite of courses tailored to the needs of Early Years and Primary teachers there. We can't travel at the moment but we are hopeful of some useful and widespread online work to start everyone off - watch this space for more details! and have a look here for more about this developing set of courses.
Our work on film! One of our students put together the video memento below of our Forest School training and last summer the Woodbridge Festival of Art and Music commissioned a set of 4 short films highlighting nature play in and around Woodbridge in Suffolk. You can find them on this page and on our YouTube channel - along with lots of our Quarantine Nature Challenge!
