Every child will have the opportunity to take part in our forest school sessions.
During these sessions, the children are provided with of a range of practical and hands-on experiences that will help them to build confidence, resilience and independence.
Through exploration and discovery, the children are able to learn about different aspects of their world but also build important life skills, essential to their lifelong learning. Forest school, for example, has been shown to have excellent benefits to children's communication and language, personal, social and emotional development as well as their physical development.
In forest school, children can learn to manage and assess risks independently, learn how to problem solve, including how to handle and use tools effectively and safely. We will also build campfires during some of our sessions and the children will learn the importance of keeping safe when near fires and how fires can be used effectively to cook food. Under careful adult supervision, the children will even get the chance to have a go at roasting their very own marshmallows.
At the end of every session, the children always return to basecamp where we discuss and reflect on what we have been learning whilst enjoying a cup of hot chocolate and cookie.
