The Forest School initiative gives our children a wonderful opportunity to explore the local area, learn about the environment and develop key learning attributes in an informal environment.
Qualified Forest School instructors from Forever Green Forest School deliver engaging sessions during which the children complete a range of tasks that could include; scavenger hunts, working with tools, making dens, solving problems.
Each class will has a 6 week block across the school year of one session a week. Parents are invited to share the last session of the block with their child. Dates are sent out at the beginning of each term.
