A Touch of the Wild

A Touch of the Wild

At A Touch of the Wild we believe strongly in valuable learning in the natural environment for children and young people. Offering a wide variety of sessions suitable for nursery to university aged pupils, we do not work exclusively with mainstream schools.
We design our sessions to match the learning outcomes in the new National Curriculum. All our sessions have a cross-curricular approach through hands on games and activities, which are tailored to suit the educational needs of your group. We aim to give pupils opportunities to work scientifically and creatively in areas that are difficult to create in the school environment.
A visit to the forest will be an exciting cross-curricular experience for children. Learning in the outdoors provides the ideal opportunity for children to increase knowledge across a range of subjects and to gain self-confidence through achieving practical tasks, most of which don’t require pencil and paper.
A Touch of the Wild can provide visits to groups throughout the year including schools, nurseries, colleges, scout and guides groups of all ages, language students, church groups, foster parent groups – in fact any group that would like to connect children or adults with the outdoors. We can also come to your school or setting to deliver a vast array of educational sessions.

We have designed sessions which relate to many different themes and areas of the curriculum. Should the activities listed not suit your group or if you have any special requirements or have a different age range we can also provide a bespoke event to suit your group. However, please give us plenty of notice if you would like us to provide a bespoke event for you as these need to be considered, discussed and planned well in advance of the date. Sessions can be half or full day, see the prices on our website. Please note children must bring packed lunch as food is not included. We have designed a series of Outreach sessions, where we bring fun outdoor learning activities to your school. We can come to you! So if you are looking to develop your outdoor learning space, we can help you to establish these within your school grounds or in private woodlands nearby. We also run weekly (in term time) year round Forest School programmes, tailored to class needs, privately for schools in Devon, let us know if this is something you’re interested in establishing at your school. See our website for more information about our Forest School programs and Outreach sessions or contact us directly to discuss this further.
