Forest School is a long-term process of frequent and regular sessions in a woodland or natural environment.
Forest School supports the development of a relationship between the learner and the natural world. Our setting is largely tarmac and we have few natural areas so we have taken the ethos of forest school and adapted it to our setting to offer forest school activities.
Our Forest School activities aim to promote the holistic development of our children, fostering resilient, confident, independent and creative learners. Forest school activities offer learners the opportunity to take supported risks appropriate to the environment and to themselves.
Furthermore our forest school activities are designed to build on our children’s innate motivation, positive attitudes and/or interests.
