Forest school is a unique way of building independence, self esteem and a positive attitude to learning in children and young people as they explore and experience the natural world for themselves.

A combination of freedom and responsibility is beneficial to children with little confidence or challenging behavior.

Valuable life skills are learnt including communication, team work and responsibility.

The children get to try their hand at lighting fires, using tools, den building and discovering the outdoors throughout the seasons.

 

The children will have the opportunity to build shelters and dens out of natural resources and used the tarpaulins to create some fantastic dens to play in. They will also love playing in the hammock.

The mud is always a constant feature creating fantastic opportunities for mud play, making mud pies, mud castles, tree faces and mud animals as well as just jumping and splashing in muddy puddles.

We will enjoy building a fire and toasting marshmallows to enjoy with our hot chocolate at snack time.

The children will create homes for woodland animals, and find out how animals, birds and insects adapt to our seasons and climate. They will have the opportunity to notice first hand how the seasons and weather change over time. 

If any parents would like to join us at Forest school at any time then you would be more than welcome.
