A holistic educational approach that looks to develop concrete skills such as tool use, fire lighting and camp cooking, whilst increasing emotional literacy (self-esteem, motivation, social skills, empathy, self-regulation and confidence). The small groups have a high staff to student ratio allow space and time for good relationships to develop and for the children and young people to thrive.
Recent Forest School Programmes have been delivered at Mevagissey Primary School during school hours on the school site. We managed to secure a £4000 grant from Tesco’s Groundworks Fund and used it to deliver 5 half-terms of afternoon Forest School and after-school Bushcraft Clubs.
WW&W is happy to help schools to apply for similar funding streams so they can offer Forest School as a positive whole-school intervention aimed at increasing emotional literay.
Market Gardening Sessions @Mevagissey School
Small groups of students are growing fruits and vegetables from seed to sell at the Mevagissey School Summer Fayre in July 2020. We spend 1hr a week together and so far they have sowed broad beans, peas, chillis, tomatoes, cress, pak choi, spinach, chard and chrysanthiums. We are trying to be sustainable and have been recycling toilet roll tubes and egg boxes as our pots.

Following our free launch sessions on the 7th June, you can book in for a block of 5 subsequent Little Winnick Forest School sessions which are taking place weekly from the 14th June – 12th July at a cost of £8 per session per child.
