Forest School uses the outdoor environment to help all children learn. Children are encouraged to develop independence skills, improve decision making and raise their self-esteem through small achievable tasks.
Sessions of Forest School are child led to suit individual learning styles. Children are encouraged to make choices and follow their own learning style. The Forest School leader's role is to help, observe and assess the children. The children are supervised by the Forest School Leader - Mr Herbert and one of the Teaching Assistants from the year group.
YR Spring Term
It might be cold outside but that does not stop YR from getting outside and enjoying the Forest School activities in the fresh air.
Y1 Spring Term
It is nice to be out in the spring sunshine as the first flowers start to open. The children do not mind the weather they just like having fun in Forest School.
Y2 Spring Term
February is a cold month so it is nice to warm up by the fire and roast marshmallows!
YR Autumn Term
With warm, sunny weather YR have been enjoying exploring Forest School and trying new activities. Have a look at the photos below to see what they have been doing.
Y1 Autumn Term
A new term and new children out into Forest School to see how it changes as we move from September to the end of October. As the leaves change colour the children explore Forest School and find out what is living around the grounds. They all look forward to the week when we roast marshmallows over the fire.
Y2 Autumn Term
It is a new term and all the children were keen to get out and enjoy the activities in Forest School. In the pictures below you can see them on a mirror walk, taking part in a nature trail, mud painting, bug hunting, making homes for the animals, playing '123 where are you?' and having fun around the grounds.
