What is Forest School?
When describing Forest School it maybe best to think of it as an outdoor classroom in a woodland setting. The children who participate often see Forest School as playtime. What child wouldn't enjoy the opportunity to leave the classroom and spend time outside? It is however, much more than playing in the woods.
Our Forest school sessions take place outdoors, in nearly all but severe weather conditions within the confines of the school grounds. This enables children from Nursery to Year 2 to experience another dimension to their learning. It aims to offer them avenues to explore and develop their self esteem in small groups with Mrs Edwards our qualified Forest School Practitioner and 2 parent volunteers who are DBS checked.
