Not an iPad in sight: Woodland nursery that shows children as young as two how to build fires and use KNIVES is bucking trend for letting technology entertain kids

'What did you learn at nursery? Probably not how to build a fire or use a sheath knife…

That, however, is exactly what one new school will be teaching youngsters aged two to five in an attempt to wean them away from their iPads.

And it will all be done outdoors in 65 acres of woodland – whatever the weather.

Children will be taught to use tools such as bow saws and billhooks to make shelters, and will learn to forage in the woods, where there will be hammocks and rope swings.

Songs will be sung around a fire circle, and there will be a couple of large tents and a yurt with a wood-burning stove inside, but no traditional school buildings.

The creators of the Woodshed Forest School Nursery near Croydon, South London, say the aim is to encourage children to ask and answer questions for themselves and to appreciate nature.

Owner Jack Scrivens said: ‘I grew up in a slum area of London. We played in derelict buildings and bomb sites where we made dens, built rafts and lit fires. We used to whittle wood to fashion toys.

‘There were no adults present and all of us kids were safe. Children assessed risk and looked after themselves and each other.’ Deputy manager Christopher Boyles said the school would teach children ‘social skills, self-awareness, self-regulation, self-motivation, empathy’.'
