The philosophy of Forest Schools is to encourage and inspire individuals of any age through an innovative, long term, educational approach to outdoor play and learning in a woodland environment.
Every child in Reception, Year 1 and the SOU participates in our Forest School, that promotes the development of the whole child, their self esteem and confidence, through child initiated activities.
These include hunting for mini beasts, building shelters, creating sculptures and collages with natural materials and caring for the environment. Staff and parents see the children's leadership and team building skills grow as they explore and experience the natural world.
Wildlife habitats that include opportunities to observe, investigate and learn about mini beasts and birds are part of our engaging and creative curriculum.
