DISCOVERY WOODS

Children thrive outdoors and there is so much to see, do and learn in the brand-new Browns Woods Discovery trail. The trail is a woodland walk filled with interactive, hands-on learning. We encourage children to get messy and creative in our Mud Kitchen. Fish for creatures big and small whilst Pond Dipping our Swan Lake, compare your findings on our Pond ID sheet to see what's living below the surface of the water! Keep your eyes peeled whilst you look for woodland animals and birds. The woods are home to all! From the minibeasts in our Bug Hotels, to the majestic birds you may find hiding in Bird Boxes! 

We have a purpose built outdoor classroom, and the trail has educational signage throughout ensuring that woods are full of excitement and discovery.

Age-appropriate activity packs which have been designed to incorporate curriculum linked outdoor learning and approved by local schools are available. We offer Key stage activity packs covering Foundation level, Key stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Included with our activity packs is all the equipment needed for Pond Dipping and the Mud Kitchens.
