Forest school is an outdoor education delivery model in which children and a qualified forest school teacher visit natural spaces around them to learn personal, social, technical skills, teamwork and problem-solving. Forest schools are notoriously known as an ‘inspirational process that offers children regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence through hands-on learning in a woodland environment’ Murray Richard (2008).
Our Forest school is both a pedagogy and a physical entity, with the use often being interchanged. In our Forest school, we use the nearby forest as a means to build independence and self-esteem in children. Topics are cross-curriculum (broad in subject) including the natural environment for example the role of trees in society, the complex ecosystem supported by the wilderness and recognition of specific plants and animals.
