Lower School has started to trial and introduce 'Forest  Schools' outdoor learning opportunities for our children.
 
Forest School is an inspirational holistic process that offers learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem. During Forest School sessions, children will be exposed to various learning experiences such as:
 

  • Having the opportunity to explore our natural area

  • Foraging for resources to create natural sculptures

  • Playing games

  • Climbing trees

  • Involvement in decision making

  • Learning how to tie simple knots

  • Helping put up a temporary shelter

  • Reflecting on their learning

  • Relaxing and taking time to breathe

 

Most of all they will have fun while they learn!
 
On the day of their Forest School session, children were asked “on a scale of 1 (really bad) - 10 (really good), how good was your day?”. This is what they said:
 
“A million, I feel great, it was brilliant! “ - Leo
“Infinity, I feel really happy” - Anna
“A billion, it was amazing!” - Stavros


We are so excited about these new learning experiences for our students!
