Forest School is an opportunity for children to learn outdoors. Using the natural environment they put into practice all of their in class learning, and experiences to lead their own exploration and discovery. It is a holistic approach, focussing on all aspects of the children’s learning and development.
Children learn through first hand experiences, some of which will be designed by the adult, many come from the children. Furthering understanding, proving theories and team projects result in greater independence, self-esteem and mutual respect. The children’s health and safety is our main priority. Helping children to understand that their actions have an impact on others and encouraging them to assess the risks, gives them ownership and responsibility of their behaviour.
