FOREST SCHOOL FOR SCHOOL: Sessions
We offer one off Forest School session, where teachers and pupils have a taste of how Forest School can support their pupils learning.
This service is specially designed for private or public schools, nurseries, Children’s centres and other educational institutions. They involve the participation of teacher and teacher’s assistants or institution staff competent in Child Development.
In Forest School we have many more opportunities than in a classroom or indoors to practice these principles: overcome fears and work to gain independence in a challenging environment, work collectively, promote positive feelings in a peaceful set up improving behaviour, to have fun with the endless natural resources and to exercise responsibility by awareness of nature conservation.
Schools, Nurseries and Children's Centre sessions
Some of the more important objectives of Forest School are raising self-esteem and catering for different learning styles.
For children under five is really important to reach positive feelings for them to be able and willing to learn.
Forest School activities are linked and developed according to the Early Years National Curriculum:
Understanding of the World (UW),
Physical Development (PD),
Personal, social and emotional development (PSED), Communication & Language (CL)
and Expressive Arts and Design (EAD).
Key stages 1 & 2:
All activities are closely linked to the National Curriculum and designed to support children’s learning in all Core and Foundation Subjects. Educational sessions in Nature and Forest School in particular are well documented to greatly influence children’s positive behaviour, especially those in primary school age.
