We are very fortunate to have a fantastic woodland setting within our school grounds which we use for Forest School. These sessions take the children’s learning outdoors and incorporate: literacy, maths, science, art, history, geography, personal and social education, design and technology, physical education and the Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship.
Within Forest School children are given the time, freedom and space to explore and discover within the woodland whilst undertaking planned, structured and well supervised activities. Forest School fosters a ‘can do’ ethos and provides a flexible approach which allows for individuality. There are many positive effects of Forest School, for example, increasing the children’s confidence, promoting team work, developing speaking and listening skills. Forest School also teaches the children to be more environmentally aware, developing an understanding of how the natural world actually works and how important their role is in looking after it.
