Forest School takes place in all weathers and as such your child will need to be dressed accordingly. All children will need to have the following items in school on their day (Tues or Wed).

 

  • Waterproof trousers and a waterproof jacket
  • Wellington boots
  • Extra warm layers – thermals, leggins or extra tights, even for boys are good
  • Warm socks, or two pairs
  • An extra jumper or fleece
  • A warm hat and gloves

 

Forest School research tells us that children are stimulated by the outdoors and typically experience, over time, an increase in their self-belief, confidence, learning capacity, enthusiasm, communication and problem solving skills and emotional well-being.

 

At Forest School all participants are viewed as:

  • equal, unique and valuable
  • competent to explore & discover
  • entitled to experience appropriate risk and challenge
  • entitled to choose, and to initiate and drive their own learning and development
  • entitled to experience regular success
  • entitled to develop positive relationships with themselves and other people
  • entitled to develop a strong, positive relationship with their natural world
