Forest School is a child-led approach to learning that incorporates children’s right to play, to access the outdoor environment and to feel success. Forest School is a unique way of building independence and self-esteem in young children, exposing them to the natural world at a time where it is vital for children to understand their impact on the environment. It is a child-centred and child-led programme that provides the opportunity for the children to use their personal learning style to complete various activities.
Forest School is an opportunity for the children at High Street to have new, creative experiences in the outdoor environment in a safe way. Children will have opportunities to learn about the natural environment, how to handle risks and most importantly to use their own initiative to solve problems and co-operate with others.
Every class has one Forest School session per week with our Forest Leader, Mrs Martin. We have waterproofs available in school for the children to wear but the children should bring in their own wellies!
