Lysterfield Lake Forest School – Boats Ropes and Knots

April 11, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm


Details: It’s time to get kids off the screens and into our forest school holiday program these school holidays! This session will be focused on bush survival and bush crafts skills, teaching kids how to do rope knots and build boats and other constructions using only natural materials.

Our team of highly experienced forest school educators will support your child’s learning so that they become more confident, curious, capable and are taught to learn how to take safe risks in the bush through climbing, building and using real tools. They will also discover and learn about our natural environment and it’s fascinating wildlife.

Some of the other activities that the children may also do at forest school are;

  • Bush navigation using maps and identifying symbols/landmarks in the area.
  • Learn rope knots and construction.
  • Bush survival and snake safety.

Our forest school aims to inspire creativity, a natural curiosity and enriching sensory play experience while following your child’s interests at all times. We also ensure that children learn to use their bodies so that they develop strength, good balance and coordination while learning to take safe risks with guidance and support from the educators.

Our program is based on the leading research from world-renowned and leading Paediatric Occupational Therapist, Angela Hanscom, author of Balanced and Barefoot to give your child optimum opportunity to build their gross motor and physical skills through climbing, balancing, walking and fine motor skills during our craft activities. Research clearly shows that the more time your child spends in nature, the better they are prepared for learning and life skills, both physically and emotionally. As Angela illustrates, “too many of today’s children miss out on the full sensory richness offered beyond the walls of the classroom or home.”

The forest school workshop is led by Laura and Adam.
