By participating in engaging, motivating and achievable tasks and activities in a woodland environment each child has an opportunity to develop intrinsic motivation, sound emotional and social skills.These, through self-awareness can be developed to reach personal potential.
Teachers in EYFS, Yr1, Yr3, Yr4 and Yr5 hold the Forest School Level 1 Accreditation. Each week, come rain or shine the children in EYFS and Key Stage One spend half a day in the Forest School. Activities include making Muddy Faces, building a fire to toast marshmallows, using tools to create Forest School necklaces, den building and many more!
Children in Key Stage Two use the Forest School as part of their curriculum work, linking work from subjects including maths, English, Science and Wheel of Wisdom.
