What is Forest School?
The Forest School movement originated in Denmark. It is based on the idea that young children can develop enthusiasm for education through the appreciation of nature. In Denmark, Forest schools have found to boost pupils’ confidence and improved their behaviour and social skills. Forest school is holistic learning through play and exploration, children learn about the environment, how to handle risks and use their initiative to solve problems and to co-operate with others.
Our forest school area is on the school site and is found in the orchard.
Dates will be sent out prior to the lesson via text or letter.
