Forest School is a child-centred inspirational learning process, that offers opportunities for holistic growth through regular sessions. It is a long-term program that supports play, exploration and supported risk taking. It develops confidence and self-esteem through learner inspired, hands-on experiences in a natural setting.
At St Mary’s we are lucky enough to have a brand new Forest School area. Mr Thompson and his dad gave up their weekends to create a fantastic outdoor space for all of the children.
The main ethos and purpose of the Forest School Movement is to develop social skills, confidence and self-esteem by encouraging children to participate in thoughtfully planned and managed outdoor activities in the natural environment.
