FOREST WEAR

 As each session is outdoors it is advised to send participants well prepared. Participants will become dirty and this is part of the Forest School experience. Due to the unpredictability of the weather participants are advised to wear the suggested items below to ensure enjoyment at Forest School. Spare items can be carried in a small back pack alongside a full drinks bottle and a hearty packed lunch, if attending for the full day.  Participants can always remove clothing if they get hot but can’t put any on, if they are cold, muddy or wet, when they don’t have it.

 

The following is an advisory list for what to wear during the different seasons:

SPRING/AUTUMN

  • Waterproof top and bottoms. *Eco Ed recommended suggestion* 

  • 1 x pair of comfortable trousers (jogging bottoms or leggings).

  • 1 x long sleeved t-shirt or top.

  • 1 x thick jumper.

  • 1 x fleecy zip up jacket (in the backpack, just in case).

  • 2 x pairs of socks. On the bottom, one thin cotton sock, and the top, a thick wool or fluffy bed sock.

  • Wellies or sturdy closed toe shoes (which you don't mind getting wet and muddy!).

FEET

Our footwear recommendation for autumn and winter are fleece lined wellies.  The best ones we've found to date are 'Spotty Otter Adventure Fleece Lined' wellies  They provide exceptional warmth without the need for more than one sock and have the benefit of being flexible to allow for tree climbing and waterproofing for those wet muddy days.
