Structure of sessions
Wolves in the Woods sessions begin with a short time gathered together, singing, reciting rhymes and listening to a story to lightly link to today's theme. We gather together again to close the session with a song and say goodbye.
In between there are activities and natural areas to explore, discover, allowing hands-on learning in a natural environment which is gated off, safe and a haven within the city.
