Forest School is a holistic programme guided by a qualified practitioner, within a safe and natural outdoor environment. Based on a Scandinavian idea, Forest School’s ethos is to work with children in the woodland, exploring, playing and learning using a range of activities designed to build a high sense of independence, self-esteem and teamwork.
Children go to Forest School weekly, learning about the woodland through fun and engaging activities involving tools, games, stories, fire lighting, mud and much more! Most of all they are able to have fun and learn about the outdoors within the setting of their own school grounds. Forest School incorporates long term discovery and exploratory play through which children will develop appropriate active social skills, learn to care for our environment as well as learning to work with natural materials and gain new experiences.
Forest School helps develop physical, mental, social, and communication skills. Theses experiences lead to confidence, free-thinking, growth, independence, well-being and whole child development.
Forest School opens the childrens’ eyes and minds to endless opportunity to explore their surroundings and imagination using trust and guidance.
All our Forest School lesson are led by one of three Forest School leaders.
