Mini Beast Safari
Grab your magnifying glass and become intrepid explorers in the wild woods. Children will be searching for creepy crawlies; comparing, contrasting species; looking at predator-prey relationships and minibeast food chains. They will discover the important role these creatures play in the ecology of our woodlands.

LINKING TO THE NEW WELSH CURRICULUM
You can be sure that our Wild Curriculum sessions link into the Four Purposes of Education For Children & Young People as set out in the new Welsh Curriculum. The curriculum aims for all children to be…
- Ambitious and capable learners, who are ready to learn throughout their lives.
- Enterprising and creative contributors, ready to play a full part in life and work.
- Healthy and confident individuals, ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.
- Ethical and informed citizens, who are ready to be citizens of Wales and the world.
We wholeheartedly believe that learning outdoors, surrounded by nature is an effective way to nurture these characteristics in our young people. We also believe it’s more powerful for a child to find an answer for themselves than for us to give it to them right away. So, we always encourage the children’s curiosity and allow plenty of opportunities for kids to ask lots of questions and explore the different possible answers. This approach of mentoring young people fosters enquiring, bright minds. Whilst the natural settings we teach in and the themes we cover work toward building their mental and emotional well-being by developing confidence, resilience and empathy.
