Castle Wild is an after school club which takes place on Wednesdays (term-time only) from 4.45 - 6.30pm, for children aged 7 - 13.
The structure of each session follows a natural rhythm that incorporates sharing and listening as a group, playing and making up games to warm up and to hone our animal senses, themed focussed activities such as foraging, bushcraft, and craft-making, and learning through free play; making, building, imagining, observing and discovering the wonders of nature.
