  1. Forest Schools

Ethos of Forest Schools

Forest School is based more on the process of learning than it is on the content, more on the 'how' than the 'what'.  This means that genuine Forest School practice steps out of the shadow and limitation of 'planned activities' and ventures collaboratively into the realms of the unplanned, unexpected and ultimately unlimited.  Learners are given encouragement to direct their own learning - this often requires catalysing on the part of the FS leader either through stimulating play in the outdoors or through 'scaffolding' a child's learning, but mostly through simply observing how children are in the outdoors.”

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: 

Please COME TO SCHOOL IN YOUR FOREST SCHOOL CLOTHES  on your Forest School day

(wellies / boots in a bag please!)

You will need several layers of loose, comfortable OLD clothing.

Please, ALWAYS bring an OLD, WARM, WATERPROOF COAT 

and some wellies or walking boots.

We are only just in to the summer and the weather can always change very quickly, so please bring enough layers to keep you warm and dry in the woods.  

NO TRAINERS PLEASE.

YOU WILL BE GETTING MUDDY!

Remember: 

You can always take a layer off if you get too hot..

But if you don't wear enough layers, you may get cold..

This will affect your learning in the woods and you'll not have as much fun, so...

WRAP UP WARM, TOO MUCH IS BETTER THAN NOT ENOUGH!
