Wild Tribe has been based on the principles of Forest Schools. It is about children and young people building self esteem and independence through exploring and experiencing the natural world.
The sessions link in superbly with The Dobwalls SECRET Skills:
- Handle Risk
- Get involved
- Identifying Problems
- Seeking feedback

The Wild Tribe sessions links to our science learning to consolidate and embed key scientific vocabulary. Mr Jones uses the science knowledge organisers to support teaching and learning for one and all.
Some of the activities are:
- Hunting for minibeasts and/or pond dipping
- Natural crafts
- Fire building and cooking on a campfire
- Mud sculptures
- Tree, plant, leaf identification and classification
- Using tools for a purpose e.g. using a knife to whittle wood to make a marshmallow stick, using a saw to cut wood to the correct size for a stick man
- science investigations
Look after yourself
Look after each other
Look after the environment
Wild Tribe is led on a weekly basis by our specialist teacher Mr Jones.
