What better way to learn than outdoors. What better way to connect with nature that outside.

Our Storytelling Throne and Mushroom Circle creates the perfect place for children to spend time outside with their teacher. The circle can be whatever size best suits the school. Some contain only a few mushrooms – some contains a considerable amount more and even a Mushroom Table in the centre of the circle.

Each mushroom seat is carved from one single piece of timber and as such all are different, each with their own character. We extend the life of the timber that is below the ground by applying a coat of Bitumen Sealant prior to installation.

The height of each stool is in the region of 370mm and the stool top diameter is 200mm.

The leader of the group will sit on the Storytelling Throne: at Just over 1.5m high it is a noticeably large piece of outdoor seating that will appear like a giant’s chair to the littlest children. It is constructed using pressure-treated wax impregnated European Pine.

Why learn outdoors?

Here are some of the benefits of taking learning outdoors.

  • They extend their personal horizons through greater appreciation and understanding of the world and its peoples around them.
  • They also understand the need for sustainable relationships between people and their environment.
  • Outdoor learning also enhances practical problem solving and team work skills.
  • Finally, outdoor learning promotes a positive and knowledgeable response towards personal health and well being.Children develop self esteem, take personal responsibility, co-operate with and respect the needs of others.
