At Outwoods, we are in the process of developing the school woodland to create a Forest School area, which is very exciting. Forest School is a specialised learning approach, led by qualified practitioners. It promotes child-led exploration of the natural world through practical activities, hands-on experiences and play. Throughout their sessions children will develop a respect for nature, others and themselves. We will go outside throughout the seasons, in all weathers. Forest School helps children gain confidence, build self-esteem, improve social skills and will encourage independence. All of which will benefit them in the classroom and beyond.
