We are very fortunate to have our own Forest School area, which is modelled on the Scandinavian approach to learning in a natural outdoor environment.
The Forest School experience encompasses all areas of the EYFS. It is a place where the children can explore the natural world to discover, respect and explore all it has to offer.
Research shows many benefits to forest school which include opportunities to manage and take risks, develop confidence, resilience, encourages social skills and motivation. It enables children to follow their individual interests, encourages interest and exploration of the ever-changing environment, promotes teamwork and communication skills.
We provide weatherproof clothing and boots to keep the children warm and dry.
Parents/cares are welcome to join us. Please see your child’s key worker.
