Craig Jones, Principle Haywood Village Academy, Weston-super-Mare
We, at Haywood Village Academy, consider ourselves incredibly fortunate to have discovered Rachel Manley (Wildwood Adventures) to lead out Forest School. The team at Wildwood have created a learning environment that is safe, purposeful and highly engaging for the children to explore independently and alongside teachers.

Rachel was able to create engaging dynamic lessons for all of our students that developed their skill sets. The lessons had clear objectives embedding the core ethos of forest school . Rachel was conscientious and put a high level of planning to ensure that the lesson was differentiated for each individual student ! I high recommend Wildwood Adventures.
Kerry Metcalfe Level 2 Outdoor Learning Course
I now feel I have better knowledge of outdoor learning, the importance and benefits outdoor learning has on children and feel confident to lead sessions to small groups of children.
Ellen Hardy, Level 2 Outdoor Learning Course
For me, the sensory trail was really interesting because it really made me aware of the world around me, the nature and being outdoors.
Cheryl Parker, Level 2 Online Learning Course
The activities we participated in were engaging and an opportunity to see how working outdoors can enable a sense of awe and wonder, create opportunities to work together, aid discussion and support the curriculum.

Rachel and her amazing team work with Years 3 and 4 at QEH Junior School, introducing them to the world of Forest School, engaging them with creative activities and developing life skills of resilience, cooperation and team work. Their cheerful, positive and practical approach is greatly enjoyed by all the pupils in an exciting learning environment away from the classroom.
