Glorious Summer Season

Wow! What a fantastic August we’ve had in the woods at Darwell. New faces and old, lots of focus and plenty of fun. Highlights include sneezy dragon stalking games, the hammock chill-out zone, willow craft, cleaving and sawing greenwood, lots of dens and good snacks cooked on the fire- including nut and berry flapjacks wrapped in sweet chestnut leaves and cooked on the embers. Some great teamwork, perseverance and adventurous spirits. See you next time!

Thank you to the Forestry Commission for continuing to support our activities in the woods. If you have taken part in any Ironwood activities this season or previously, please do take a moment to complete this simple online survey (takes 2 mins!):

May is for Play

Two very busy days here at Ironwood Forest School! Nervous new children and eager returnees, some very tired legs at the end of the day, as well as new friends made, skills learnt and interesting sticks found and incorporated into games and craft! Lots of personal adventures and achievements along the way. 8 weeks til summer… Can’t wait!
