Today’s activity is the first of a series. From now on I am going to visit the same woodland every week to record a 5-minute video. That way if you do not have access to woodland for your daily exercise you too can head to the woods once per week. One of the many things that makes Forest School great is the regular visits to the woodland. It is a way for children of any age to connect to the rhythms of nature. They witness first hand how the world changes week to week and month to month how the seasons make their mark.
This is also an opportunity for you and your children to take five minutes to listen to the sounds of nature and relax. I know it is not the same as five minutes in the woods yourself but I am hoping it is a good second best.
