Forest Schools

 

Forest School is an inspirational approach to outdoor learning and development. It is run over a long period of time in a woodland environment or space with trees. The children are given access to a wide range of engaging opportunities, which help develop their confidence and self esteem. They often lose themselves in their activities and can see that they are able to achieve in things they never thought possible.

Their progress is closely monitored but they are left of develop their ideas in their own way and are given time to reflect upon what they have done along with their peers. Children have a special connection with the natural environment and this can go a long way towards improving their emotional well being.
