Forest School

At the Primary Campus, we are extremely fortunate to have a large, natural site which consists of several areas perfect for forest school. Children take part in forest school sessions throughout the school year. Forest school sessions help to develop: self awareness, empathy, social skills, communication skills, independence, self esteem and confidence and physical development including both fine and gross motor skills. Our forest school curriculum teaches children a range of experiences including:

  • tree and plant identification
  • knot tying
  • den building
  • whittling

In addition to these specific forest school experiences, forest school sessions include opportunities for children to explore reading and writing in a different environment and develop their oracy skills through activities such as storytelling, poetry, song writing and much, much more. Staff are encouraged to use the forest school area across the curriculum and take learning outside where possible.
