All sessions are based at Hilsea Lines. The Lines provide a wealth of resources for play, learning and discovery.  However, I am able to bring my equipment and resources to you if required.

Exploring Nature activities and experiences include:



A variety of weekly Forest School groups, ranging from nature babies, parents and tots and after school groups for children and young people of all ages.



One-off family sessions are opportunities for parents or carers and children to come together and have fun in the forest, share experiences and learn new skills.



All day, fun sessions for 5 – 11 year olds based on the Forest School ethos available during Portsmouth school holidays.



Let me take the stress out of your child’s special day so you can relax and join in with all the fun. Off-the-shelf packages available or arrange for a bespoke experience to be planned around your child’s interests.



I can provide Forest School, Outdoor Play and Educational sessions for primary and senior schools through 1:1’s, small groups or whole classes. I can tailor sessions to your needs with curriculum links and a focus on your current topics. I am able to run sessions from your setting or your group can visit my Portsmouth location.


I am planning on restarting my regular Forest School groups following the February half term which is 15th – 19th February 2021. I’m also planning on running some one-off child and family sessions during the half term. I have some vouchers available to purchase for groups and events if you are looking to buy locally for Christmas.

Obviously, all of these events/groups will be governed by restrictions in place at the time, which none of us will know until nearer the time.  However, I firmly believe we all need something to look forward to and what could be better than spending a couple of stress-free hours in the woods getting plenty of fresh air and exercise and having loads of fun?

As an ethical enterprise, I would like to reassure anyone that makes a purchase for an event or a group that I will endeavour to run that group or event within the government guidance at the time. However, if the regulations make it impossible to run the group or event, I would initially try to reschedule the session at a mutually convenient time for both of us or, if this wasn’t possible, I could hold that money in lieu of a future event or refund you in full.


Our Testimonials

Session was fun and it was good to be in the outdoors as well as in a caring environment.

Exploring Nature Group is a highlight of our week. The children gain so much from having this time learning outside, they enjoy joining in with the games and activities with their group. Even in the coldest winter sessions as soon as the fire is lit it all feels worth it!

A lovely morning spent making reindeers and memories. Well organised and explained by Sharon. Would definitely recommend and not just for festive fun. Thank you.

Fun couple of hours making a reindeer and tree decoration out of wood and twigs today - pure escapism. Festive refreshments, with a campfire to warm through the mulled wine and mince pies. Well organised- thoroughly recommend.
