Working with schools
W.I.L.D. currently work with schools in Glasgow and further afield. We can welcome groups of up to 16 to join us at our Forest school sites in Linn Park or can facilitate larger groups in school grounds, bringing our Forest school equipment and expertise to you.
Forest school sessions
Forest School is a child-centred inspirational learning process that offers opportunities for holistic growth through regular sessions. These are 2 hour sessions which would be run weekly for a minimum of 6 weeks. As our maximum participant number is 16 we can run AM and PM sessions to facilitate a class of up to 32.
In-service day training
W.I.L.D. run In-service day training for teachers. These are 2 hour sessions which can be hosted in Linn Park or again in your own school grounds if you have a wooded area. We can tailor sessions to meet the needs of those attending or those of the whole school community. Through discussion and practical tasks teachers will experience a Forest school session; gaining confidence and knowledge to take back to the school community.
John Muir Award
The John Muir Award is a great way to ignite an interest into the wild or natural places in your local area. Through this award pupils will learn about tree and plant species, habitats, seasons, Scottish wildlife, climate change, conservation and loads more. The award focuses on four main elements: Discover, Explore, Conserve and Share. We can deliver the John Muir award to your school through extensive knowledge and experience of the natural world.
