Forest School is an inspirational process that offers ALL learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment. Our reception children take part in Forest School every Monday!

 

The children benefit from:

* Learning in a relaxed environment.

* Exploring the constantly changing outside classroom.

* Child led learning – adults facilitate and supervise.

* Developing skills and competencies.

* Self-assessing risk and taking risks.

* Knowing their own strengths and challenging themselves.

* Encouraging independence, confidence and initiative.

* Real life experiences.

* Developing communication, co-operation and skills.

* Interest and enjoyment.

Required Forest School Clothing

* Long sleeved top (arms must be covered).

* Long trousers –not jeans if possible (legs must be covered).

* Suitable sturdy shoes (Wellies/boots). Trainers are okay in dry weather. 

* Shoes must have enclosed toes.

* Waterproof trousers and jackets (if the weather is wet).

* Warm coat, gloves, hats, jumpers and layers (if the weather is cold).

* Sun hats and sun cream (if the weather is hot).

The weather will be assessed before each Forest School session and if necessary the session would be cancelled as we want Forest School to be a positive experience for everybody!
