Forest School

During the first half of the Autumn Term Hedgehogs class took part in Forest Schools every Wednesday morning from 13th September 2023 to 18th October 2023 (5 sessions as no Forest School on 27th September 2023). They had a wonderful time – please see pictures below!

The children of Hedgehogs class took part in 2 further Forest School sessions on Wednesday 8th May 2024 & Wednesday 15th May 2024.  They again had a wonderful time – please see pictures below!

Forest School is an ethos which encourages children’s emotional and physical development through outdoor play, activities and exploration in a woodland environment.  The philosophy of Forest School is to encourage and inspire individuals of any age through positive experiences and participation in engaging and motivating achievable tasks and activities fostering:

  • Independence
  • Confidence
  • Communication Skills
  • Self-esteem

These attributes have proved to be an effective foundation that raises academic achievement and is therefore an excellent way to support the National Curriculum and consolidate learning in the classroom.
