Forest School

Welcome to our Forest School Page.

 

Here you can find out all about our area and what your children have been learning and exploring. My name is Emma Thomas I am the Forest School Lead for the School, I love the outdoors, learning and exploration.

 

To come out to Forest School you will need:

 

Wellie boots - these are so important for jumping in puddles and mud holes, but also for keeping our feet safe while using tools and materials. 

Coats, hats, gloves - These are needed every week, the only time we do not go out to the area is when it is too windy as it can be dangerous, we will be out in the rain, snow and hopefully soon the sunshine. 

Sun cream and Sun hats - When the sunshine finally finds us, we will be needing to make sure we are protected from the suns rays, so come April I will be asking all children that are joining me to have sun cream in their bags. 

 

Forest School is so important for our children as we learn about nature and woodland skills. Forest school can also help children in promoting confidence and independence, giving them a sense of success and self esteem.  This method of learning encourages and improves social skills, speech and language and physical skills.
