Some people will be wondering what forest school is! First and for most it’s about allowing children to know nature, the trees the grass the birds, animals and insects. Allowing them an opportunity to have fun, play and take their own risk. To allow children to guide there own learning.
Each one of these is an avenue to explore with fun and games along the way.
As children become settled in the woodland environment new skills are shown, practiced and learned. Using tools to carve and whittle building dens to keep dry and as part of stories and when children are cold what better way than a fire and a hot chocolate with toasted marshmallows.
