Forest School

Forest School sessions run all year round where children can observe the changes in seasons and the effect it has on the woodland.

Every week the pre-school children go to Forest School. This is where they have the opportunity to explore the local woodland with our qualified Forest School leader. They travel to the set up site in the woods on the nursery minibus. The Forest School sessions support children’s holistic development through activities and experiences provided in the natural woodland environment.

Forest School sessions run all year round where children can observe the changes in seasons and the effect it has on the woodland. There are occasional visitors to the site where children sometimes spot woodland animals such as squirrels and birds. These Forest School sessions are invaluable to children’s learning and development.

During each session the children gather around the fire circle and talk about what they would like to do. Each session is unique and specifically designed for groups of children. The children engage in a range of activities of their own choosing. They like to climb the branches of an old fallen elder tree that is situated on the site. The children make bows and arrows using sticks and string, they also like to make swords too. They have the freedom and space to have races and play chasing games. Children can get creative by using mud, leaves and twigs to make funny faces on the tree trunks. They develop the skills they need to manage their own risk. They also develop an understanding of safety and keeping others safe.

As children become skilled in managing their own risk they are supported to build swings using ropes on branches of the trees. The Forest School leader supports them to do this. Children have their meals and snacks on site too. They can toast brioche on the fire and the Forest School leader boils water to make hot chocolate. They have a range of foods for their tea including soup, crumpets and jacket potatoes which are all made on the fire. Children are taught how fire is used and how it can be used safely. Stories are read around the fire circle which often provides a seed idea for the session. Children like to make necklaces by threading beads made from elder twigs. They often take home their creations which they love to show off when they return to nursery! Shelters are put up when the weather is wet and children can wear waterproof forest school suits which are suitable for colder winter months. Children particularly enjoy this weather as they like to investigate water in a natural environment.
