Forest School & Outdoor Learning

Forest School and outdoor learning provides a non classroom environment where children can problem solve, develop their thinking skills, recognise and assess risks for themselves. As well as learn new skills like the use of tools, knots, tree knowledge, camp fires and den building but most importantly having the freedom to enjoy the outdoors and have fun.
