In Forest School children experience the freedom of learning outside where we believe they can flourish in areas as diverse as self-esteem, social and physical skills, literacy and creative development. They are encouraged to attend regular sessions so that over time they can develop a connection to the natural space, build confidence and independence and learn to manage their own risk.

As well as promoting mental and physical wellbeing Forest School encourages children to:

  • Be themselves and be valued for being themselves.
  • Use language and interaction based on the principals of Emotional Literacy, whereby individuals are carefully given direction in how to deal with uncomfortable situations in a positive manner.
  • Improve gross and fine motor skills.
  • Be aware of visual and auditory stimulus outdoors.
  • Develop spatial awareness.
  • Become aware of a range of sensory interaction and environmental feedback.

Types of activities include:

  • Environmental group games
  • Den building and natural shelters
  • Knot tying
  • Tool use and making things from wood
  • Exploring the woodland
  • Mud play
  • Natural arts and crafts
  • Firelighting and building fires for cooking and other activities
  • Looking for minibeasts
  • Improving natural habitats such as planting, mini-beast homes and bird feeders
