There is no such thing as the wrong weather to go outside just the wrong clothing!
Children need warm clothing, wellies with welly socks and hats, gloves and waterproofs depending on the weather conditions.
We go out whatever the weather except in strong winds or storms.
Children walk from school into the adjacent woodland. There are large expanses of woodland to explore and revisiting the same woodland all year round gives children a chance to experience changing seasons at first hand.
Besides learning about nature and the world around them, Forest School gives opportunity for the children to ‘discover themselves’, what they are capable of, to take risks and to trust in their own capabilities; to work independently and as part of team. It provides an environment where children can develop their self-confidence and self-esteem, and to appreciate their strengths. It enables the children to work together to develop their sense of ‘community’ and an understanding and tolerance of others with different opinions and points of view.
At Forest School I love exploring and discovering
I love playing in the stream because I get wet and muddy
I love the nature that’s why I love it!
I love making fires, clay animals, everything!
