It is proven from research that learning that takes place in the outdoors it much more powerful and memorable as all the senses are involved. Forest School helps children develop through a child-led approach and teaches them how to access risk for themselves.
Children will go out in all weathers. We will not go out in lightning storms. Children are encouraged to bring into school appropriate clothing for the weather e.g. a warm coat, hat, gloves and of course wellington boots. The Forest School Teacher will monitor the impact of the weather on the activities and children and if the weather poses a risk to children will come back into school.
