Forest School is an inspirational process that offers all learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment.
Forest School at Coteford allows the children to explore, become more confident and develop independence. They are given the choice of how they would like to complete something, whether they want to work on their own or with a group and whether they want to share their work or not. It is important that children are given the choice and not forced to do anything. The sessions may be linked to the curriculum or reflect children’s interests. What is important to us is that the children are outside and learning using the natural environment.
