Forest School is an outdoor education program with a focus on engaging children with nature and building both independence and social skills. We believe that this is an essential part of development for children and have invested in training our own Forest School Leader, Mrs Dancer.
All children get to experience a wide range of activities throughout the year, whatever the weather. These include den building, art activities, exploring and finding out about nature. Through forest school we develop self esteem and self confidence by working as part of a team or independently.
Children learn to persevere and explore their own ideas and overcome problems. We also spend a lot of time getting messy, which is great fun, but school provide appropriate clothing to keep them warm and dry.
