What is Forest School?

Forest School teaches  ‘holistically’. That is, we won’t just be concentrating on academic skills but also team building, reasoning and critical thinking skills- which can be taken back into the classroom. These outdoor learning experiences will help your child build self-confidence and resilience.


It is based outdoors so they also start to appreciate nature as well as build on creative skills. 

The types of activities that we will be taking part in are:


Den building



Planting trees



Bug hunts






Fire building



Cooking over a fire



Creating and telling stories



Making art and sculptures



Identifying plants and animals



Woodland crafts including using tools



Making music from natural materials
