Forest School

Research suggests that children learn best from first-hand experience. Exploring, playing and problem solving within the forest school aims to encourage learning using a range of activities (both designed by the leader and instigated by the children themselves). Building a sense of independence, high self-esteem and team work are important parts of forest school, but health and safety considerations are always of paramount importance.

This term in Year 1 we have done lots of different activities in our Forest School sessions.

We have explored the area and found which mini-beasts live there... there are lots and lots!

We were nature detectives and tried to find various items to check off our I-Spy list. 

Some children climbed part of the tree, they made sure that they knew how to keep safe and that they were aware of any hazards.

We also had a rainy session (rain doesn't stop us having fun in Forest School) so we got muddy...

Gathering hand-fulls of mud we splatted it on the trees and created out own mud faces, decorating them with items we had found.
