Umberslade Forest School

Our Forest School sessions are set in a secluded wooded area a short walk from the farm. Be prepared

Operating as usual


❄️With tomorrow's (Wednesday) freezing temperatures plus the wind chill from a north wind we have made the decision to cancel the Farm Yard Friends Session.❄️
We will hopefully be back Friday with yummy hot chocolate and marshmallows on the fire.

❄️❄️A slight change of plan for tomorrow.
With the freezing temperatures we are giving you the best of both worlds some time outside toasting bread on the fire and playing at farm yard friends then for those that want to the play barn will the be open to use until the end of the session. ❄️❄️

☀️❄️Tomorrow's forecast looks sunny but cold. Remember lots of layers are the key to keeping warm!☀️❄️
I also find if you bring spare gloves it can be a game changer to warm little hands up at the end of the session.
Not forgetting you can head to Espresso Farm for a warm drink and some lunch

☀️Well after a very wet start the sun came out just in time for Forest school. ☀️
The sun was shining through the trees especially up by the cars and mud kitchen.
The best part was finding this lovely message at the end of the session.
We also had a great morning sharing it with you. ❤️

Wet Wednesdays keeping Mabel warm and dry in her all in one and bubble boots


Outdoor Farmyard Friends is our new stay and play session with all the fun of Forest school but with less mud and more shelter from the elements.

We all know the winter months aren't so inviting for outdoor adventures so we have come up with a compromise because we know and believe in the importance of getting children outside.

We are moving all the fun of Forest school into a large barn with direct access to a secure yard with shelters.

We will still have a fire circle area for toasting the ever popular fire side snacks along with the most popular areas of forest school the water play and mud kitchens plus lots more.

Come dressed for the weather and be prepared to have lots of fun! We have plenty of space for pushchairs and are conveniently located very close to Espresso Farm for drinks and snacks if you wish.

Running every Monday, Wednesday & Friday morning 10-11.30am until 23rd December.

🙈Please don't hide from the colder weather🙈

Unfortunately we've had to cancel a few forest school sessions due to low numbers.
This makes us all sad.
We apologise to those who had already booked on.
We really want to keep the session running but can only do so if we can cover our costs.


Agreed! Thank you to Conscious Parents 🍁


🌳Come outside this November and enjoy the outside 🌳

Another great session today.

Well yesterday was such a wonderful session. The sun was shining so we decided to have an impromptu fire and toast some marshmallows. Oh they were scrummy ❤️😋

What gets your vote!
Baked Apples or Soup and crusty bread


🍎This week it's all about apples.🍎
We've rolled them, built towers with them and painted with them.
Next week we are hoping to have soup or baked apples on the fire. Let us know what your choice would be!


I've eaten a fair few over the last few years 😂♥️

Don't ever let a weather forecast ever put you off because it certainly doesn't stop the fun!
