What is Forest School?

The concept originates from Scandinavia where the young children are taken on walks through the forest following an imaginary character.  Along the way they explore and investigate, take risks and learn together in the great outdoors.  The ethos has now been introduced to the UK under the name ‘Forest School’.

Activities are varied and linked both to the curriculum and the season in which they take place. Nature is at the heart of all of that we do and children will, over time, learn about the world around them.

Sessions focus on aspects of holistic development. The teacher is less a person of authority and more a facilitator, mentor and experienced companion.  Children are allowed to choose the direction they take, discover, discuss and develop without the constraints of a table and chair.  As they learn to respect this freedom they will learn about themselves, learn about others, and learn to be resilient.
