Forest School

Outdoor learning at its very best

IMAG0828 IMAG070414 13 16

Older Nursery children have a Forest School lesson – led by our own fully-trained staff – every week, and the Twiglets and Saplings classes use our  woods for learning about nature, too.  We are extremely lucky to have our own woods to use – no worries about strangers, rubbish or dogs!

Led by our own staff, children learn how to use simple tools safely, cook in a Fire Circle, find minibeasts and signs of other animals, look at how plants grow, get muddy, explore and connect to the natural world and the changing seasons.

Forest School is brilliant for developing young children’s independence, their confidence, and their speaking and listening skills…It’s also good for physical and emotional health, builds social skills…and is tremendous fun!
