Wild Detectives: Minibeast Safari

Join us again out in the woods during a day of nature education for children as they become Wild Detectives for a day at our Forest School. In our third and final video we follow the children on a minibeast safari as they look for insects and other creatures to investigate and learn all about them.
This activity makes a great session for Key Stage 1 & 2 school children and we often work with school groups delivering outdoor education on a range of topics. If you'd like to get in touch with us to find out how we can rewild your school curriculum then please get in touch.

My Moment of Nature Connection

It shouldn't be hard to reconnect with nature. All we need to do is to start looking and listening. This video was made without planning, I just wanted to share what I had seen and heard with our audience to demonstrate how simple and accessible it is to reconnect with nature. Anyone can do it, everyone should do it. I encourage everyone to take time out of their busy lives to spend on their own, immersed in nature.

Wild History: Journey to the Iron Age

Your school can travel back in time to the ancient past of the Iron Age Celts with our Wild History sessions which give Key Stage 2 pupils an inspiring, engaging and educational experience as they live as Celts for the day. We travel to schools across Wales and North West England. If you would like to know more about how you van get a Wild History session at your own school or event then visit

This video chronicles a magical week spent in North Wales bringing a roundhouse to life as school children took on all the many tasks needed for daily life in the village. Kids learned by doing, being fully immersed in the sights, sounds and smells of the Iron Age.

With our Wild History school sessions, the past leaps off the page and comes alive.

We also host Wild History sessions for the Viking & Saxon age.

Thanks to Follow Films for producing this beautiful video. Also thanks to the community of Rhosesmor without whom we wouldn't have been invited to take part in this week long event and work with these school children.

Mindfulness in Nature: Using Animal Senses

I show how animals in the woods can inspire us to engage all our senses when experiencing the natural world through mindfulness. These are techniques you can use yourself whilst exploring the outdoors. Let's explore; owl eyes, deer ears, badger nose, squirrel fingers and adder tongue.

Presented by Counsellor, Life Coach and Mindfulness in the Woods Practitioner, Lea Kendall from Woodland Classroom.

Identifying the Mystery Tree

Identifying trees in winter is great way to improve your bushcraft & woodland knowledge, as at this time of year we don’t have the leaves on the trees to help with identification. So, we have to look closer.

In this video I get stumped (no pun intended) by a mystery tree whilst out exploring the countryside.
