Learning In The Forest
Our forest area is located towards the back of the church. It is the perfect area to be outside in as the canopy of trees acts as a shelter for all weathers.
The ethos of our forest school is that we enable the children to explore and experience the natural world through hands-on activities. The forest school approach is known to develop confidence and self-esteem in children through natural, child-led learning.
Forest School Activities
All learning is play-based and child-led. Time and space are limitless and there is no constraint on how long one child engages in an activity. This makes holistic development easier to achieve than in a classroom. It is particularly important for children to have the freedom to choose and express themselves creatively. If not, their innate talents may be stifled.
