Adapting Forest School to Covid 19
22nd October 2020
How should we adapt forest schools during a global pandemic? By popular demand we are once again running an ‘Adapting to Covid 19’ skills share session for practitioners, teachers and anyone interested in forest schools and outdoor learning. The Skills Share is a chance to come and swap ideas and questions about how to run forest schools as safely as possible at this time. It is recognised that the risk of infection is lower outdoors, but we still need to consider risk assessments, use of kit, the choice of games and activities and new handwashing and hygiene routines.
When we ran this session in July everyone came away with new ideas and suggestions to take them through the summer. With more forest schools taking place now that schools are back, this will be a chance share and pick up more ideas for navigating this difficult time.
Bradford Forest School Network’s Skills Share sessions are an informal way to build ideas, gain skills and meet other forest school and outdoor learning practitioners . Exact content will be determined by those that come on the day, but we’ll encourage everyone to share their experiences or ideas with others in the group. However don’t be dissuaded if you don’t have an idea to share – all are welcome!
We will gather in groups of no more than 6 and maintain social distancing throughout. If you have symptoms of Covid-19, or anyone in your household does, you need to stay at home – please don’t come to this event!
The event is free for Full Members and £5 for Associate Members and non-members
