Forest School is outdoor learning using natural resources for inspiration, to enable ideas and to encourage intrinsic motivation. It provides opportunities to learn about the natural environment, how to handle risks and to use their own initiative to solve problems and co-operate with others. Typical Forest School activities might involve tool use, fire-making or den-building.Research has shown that children, who take part in Forest School, establish and grow in confidence and self-esteem . This can lead to improved learning in the classroom. It is run by Mrs Armstrong and Mrs Formosa in the school grounds.
