Forest School

Our Forest School is an inspirational area, that offers ALL children regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment with trees.

 

Within our forest school and Wyre Forest Partnerships we offer a specialised learning approach that sits within and compliments the wider context of outdoor and woodland education.

 

 Our children learn about different types of wildlife, habitats, environmental changes, orienteering, wood work, pond dipping and safe use of outdoor area  Our younger children learn from creating all sorts of existing concoctions in our mud kitchen.

 

Children get the opportunity to explore the properties of wood and how to saw and manipulate different materials.

 

 Our Forest school sessions are  a long-term process of regular sessions, rather than a one-off or infrequent visits; the cycle of planning, observation, adaptation and review links each session.  They takes place in a woodland or natural environment to support the development of a relationship between the learner and the natural world.  Our children uses a range of learner-centred processes to create a community for being, development and learning.

 

 We aims to promote the holistic development of all those involved, fostering resilient, confident, independent and creative learners.

 

 We offers learners the opportunity to take supported risks appropriate to the environment and to themselves.

 Our Forest School provision is run by qualified Forest School practitioners who continuously maintain and develop their professional practice.
