What is Forest School?

Forest School is of great benefit to children because it provides unique opportunities and experiences to learn outside the classroom, where they can explore their natural surroundings. Forest School works with the ‘whole child’ building a child’s independence through achievable tasks, it builds upon their confidence and self-esteem when they complete tasks, gaining that great feeling of satisfaction. Children also begin to have respect for their natural world; finding out about plants, trees, birds and insects. They will have opportunities to build dens and shelters, play with ropes, and learn some knots & possibly have hot chocolate around the fire. But all in all have great fun!
