Forest School

A Forest School is an innovative educational approach to outdoor play and learning.’ The philosophy of Forest Schools is to encourage and inspire individuals of any age through positive outdoor experiences. Forest School programmes run throughout the year, going to the woods in all weathers (except for high winds). Children use full sized tools, play, learn boundaries of behaviour; both physical and social, establish and grow in confidence, self-esteem and become self motivated. Forest school activities develop practical and intellectual skills which can be linked to the National Curriculum and Foundation Stage Curriculum.

Each session combines woodland activities with team building games and builds upon and extends skills learnt in previous sessions. Some of the sessions will include fire safety, lighting small fires and camp fire activities including toasting marshmallows and cooking popcorn.
