What is Forest Schools?

Forest Schools is an educational approach to outdoor learning and play which encourages and inspires children.

The forest based activities are interesting, achievable and lots of fun. They motivate children and help them to develop new skills which can be transferred into their everyday lives.


What we are learning?

The aims of the sessions are to raise the children’s awareness of the environment and how to care for it. In addition activities encourage their language skills, collaborative play and problem solving in a small group situation, whilst having lots of fun and learning new things about the forest.
