Have you meet our Forestry Leader? Big Welcome to Amanda!

Have you meet our new Forestry Leader at the Treehouse Club? 

We would like to extend a warm welcome to Amanda.   All the children at our various settings have had the opportunity to participate in fantastic outdoor learning and Forest School with Amanda.

Here is a little Q&A:

Q: A bit about your background?  When did you get into forestry education?

A: I’ve worked in Early Years for a long-time and always enjoyed activities outdoors as well a being a Club Leader.  I saw how much my classes benefitted when they did Forest School.  I decided to train with Essex Wildlife Trust and became a qualified Forest School Leader. 

Q: What is your favourite forestry activity?

A: A campfire on a chilly day, toasting marshmallows or crumpets.

Q: What do you find inspiring about forestry education / forest school?

A: What inspires me is the ‘Holistic Element’ – children can develop in all areas and direct their own teaching.  The benefits of being outdoors as much as possible are huge.

Q: If you were a woodland animal, what animal would you be and why?

A: A squirrel – because they are such good climbers and I would love to see the world from their view point. 

We are proud to say that our Treehouse team are a passionate lot, united in creating something really special and something different.  Well Amanda  we hope you have enjoyed your first few weeks!  Can’t wait to see more of your forestry activities.
