Foresters' Forest Schools Day

Tuesday 2nd July

The Foresters’ Forest programme will be holding a ‘Schools Day’ on Tues 2nd July to provide an opportunity for schools (both staff and pupils) to present information to each other about the Foresters’ Forest  projects that they have worked on. 

We know that some great work has been produced and we’d like this day to be a chance for schools to learn from each other and inspire more use of the Forest as a giant learning resource.  

Some schools have already been involved with:

  • Archaeology Digs 
  • Learning about our Freemining heritage by visiting Hopewell Colliery
  • Understanding more about Bats with Bat Nav at Clearwell Caves
  • Creating new ponds
  • Learning about Forest authors with Reading the Forest
  • Making music with the Forest’s Musical Landscape
  • Using the apps: ‘Hidden Heritage of the Dean’ and ‘Coleford’s Hidden Heritage’ (and now the chance to help create the new ‘Cinderford’s Hidden Heritage’ app)

If your school would like to come along and present a project to explain what you’ve learnt about within our Forest, please contact Foresters' Forest Programme Manager Sue Middleton.

If your school hasn’t been involved with Foresters’ Forest projects yet, please take this opportunity to come along and find out more, or look on our website to see the range of 38 projects covering our natural, built and cultural heritage.

More details to follow, but the event will be held at Five Acres High (thanks to Mr Derry) and is open to any primary, secondary or special school within the Hundred of St Briavels.
