Forest School

What is Forest School?

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 Summer Term

Now we have warmer weather and Forest School changes quickly so the children get to see it move from spring to summer. With bushes in full leaf it is a great place to hide when we play '123 where are you?'

Y1 Summer Term

The children love to be outside in the summer. They can explore, learn about the plants and animals and have fun with their friends.


Y2 Summer Term

Summer at last! In Forest School we can enjoy all the activities without getting cold. It is a good time for bug hunting, mud painting and searching for hidden treasure in the sand.
