Imagine being able to explore, discover and experience learning in an outside environment. You have just imagined Forest School. Pupils learn new skills from climbing trees safely to how to use a knife and bow saw. The focus is on team work and sharing thoughts and ideas. Very quickly Forest School members become a team and support one another in the various tasks.
Recently we built shelters, students enhanced them by finding wood to make seats and tables.
We cooked food over an open fire which we then ate- very delicious.
We do lots of crafts and exploring, we have also planted a willow fence to surround a magic circle.
Every time we go down to the woods we discover something new about them and more importantly ourselves.
