Forest School

Welcome to our Forest School website page

Forest Schools make a difference in the following ways:

  • Confidence: children have the freedom, time and space to learn and demonstrate independence
  • Social skills: children gain an awareness of the consequences of their actions on peers through team activities such as sharing tools and participating in play
  • Communication: language development is prompted by the children’s sensory experiences
  • Motivation: the woodland tends to fascinate children and they develop a keenness to participate and the ability to concentrate over longer periods of time
  • Physical skills: these improvements are characterised by the development of physical stamina and gross and fine motor skills
  • Knowledge and understanding: the children develop an interest in their natural surroundings and learn to respect the environment
