What is a Forest school?

'Forest School is an inspirational process, that offers ALL learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment with trees. Forest School is a specialised learning approach that sits within and compliments the wider context of outdoor and woodland education.'

Forest school Association

 

Forest school at Freemantle

Our Forest School sessions run in the afternoon, in school's nature area and secret garden. They are lead by Mrs Steinman with Mrs Marshall supporting. During their Forest school sessions children will have opportunities to engage in activities such as den building, cooking over an open fire and using tools to produce different bush craft.

 

All children in year 1, year 3 and year 5 will have the opportunity to attend Forest School sessions for half a term during the academic year.  There is also the opportunity for some children from year 2,4 and 6 to attend half a term of sessions. Children will be given a letter from their class teacher when it is their turn to attend.

 

Clothing

Children will need to dress appropriately for the weather as we go outside in all weathers! (with the exception of very high winds or storms). In the cold weather lots of layers are essential to keep children warm for the whole afternoon outside. In wet weather the children will need a change of clothes/waterproofs, wellies/waterproof shoes/boots. In hotter weather we recommend children have light, long sleeves and trousers (not shorts) and hats/caps. It is advisable to always provide a change of clothing for children as they may well get wet or muddy!

 

If you have any questions or queries please don't hesitate to speak to Mrs Steinman.
