PRIMARY SCHOOL

WHAT IS FOREST SCHOOLS?

By engaging in motivating achievable tasks in the woodland environment each Forest Schools student has an opportunity to develop self-awareness to reach personal potential. Forest Schools has achieved success with children of all ages who regularly visit the local woodlands to handle risks, learn about their local environment, discover their potential and use their initiative to problem solve and co-operate.

Children use full-size tools, light fires, and cook, learn boundaries of behaviour, grow and establish confidence, self-esteem, and self-motivation.

OUR AIM IS TO DEVELOP;

  • Communication skills
  • Independence
  • Positive mental attitude
  • Self-esteem
  • Confidence
  • Self-awareness and regulation

Come rain or shine we aim to be enjoying ourselves in our local woodlands. The school website and our termly newsletter will keep you updated on our adventures. Periodically we would openly invite our grown-ups to come and see what we do in our sessions and maybe join in with a little whittling, shelter building or maybe enjoy a meal around our campfire!
