Forest School

At Little Oaks we use the glebe area behind our school for Forest School learning and all children attending will have the opportunity to take part. The aim of Forest School is to develop the children’s skills of collaboration, cooperation, team building and awareness of the natural environment, and their knowledge and understanding of the natural world. Children will make their own choices, whilst understanding the risks and challenges of the tasks that they complete. Children will improve their understanding and appreciation of the world around them and the impact of their own actions on the environment.

A full risk assessment is completed and children set their own boundaries at the beginning of each session by tying yellow ribbons around the perimeter of the site. If there is a qualified Forest School leader present then we will have fire but if not, we will still practise safety around the fire circle. We always ensure there is a high ratio of adults to children and parents are welcome to come along and help.

Exploring in the woods is so much fun!
