Shield Tree Wood

Shield Tree Wood is a Viking themed Forest School and outdoor woodland at Thornsett Fields Farm on the edge of the Derbyshire Peak District.

We are passionate about getting children and adults back outside where they are happiest. At Shield Tree Wood we use exploration, den building, woodland crafts, tool use, campfire cooking, woodland games and story-telling to support the emotional development of our learners. Self-esteem and confidence are nurtured leading to the long-term development of life skills such as team-work, empathy, problem-solving, creating thinking, resilience and perseverance.

As well as all the benefits that comes from Forest School and outdoor learning, Shield Tree Wood offers a fun way of teaching Viking and local history to children and adults. The Viking way of life goes hand in hand with the ethos of Forest School, so we tie in Viking folklore, crafts, mythology and history into some of our sessions.
