"I love Forest School." - Rohana (3 years 7 months)
"What do you love about Forest School?" - Martin
"Everything!" - Rohana
Forest School originated in Scandinavia with the idea of encouraging and inspiring children through positive outdoor experiences. Since 2009 we have run a programme of outdoor learning for children aged 3-5 years old and take 5 groups of children by minibus into local woodland from Monday to Friday, between September and July (for 44 weeks) in all weathers. Children climb and jump off trees, tell stories, make trails, build dens and hunt for mini-beasts together.

We find that Forest School gives children an understanding of the natural environment and how to handle risks, and most importantly, how to use their own initiative to solve problems, co-operating with their friends. So, when they had an idea to build a mammoth trap they all lent a hand, bringing huge branches to cover a ditch in the woodland - we waited for ages but didn't catch one!
