What is Forest school?

“Forest School is an inspirational process that offers all learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self esteem, through hands on experiences in a woodland or natural environment with trees”- Forest School Association

In the Forest school sessions the children learn about the the natural environment around them in pre-planned activities, in discussions, reflections and ‘free play’.

The benefits from participating in Forest School include:

Improvement in social skills, communication skills and also self esteem.  It provides opportunities for the children to develop their motor skills and their risk taking skills, as well as the development of their emotional intelligence.  Forest School also increases the children’s knowledge of the surroundings in the natural environment.
