Forest School is essentially an outdoor classroom. It is all about getting out in the woods to explore and learn. Sessions are led by a qualified Forest School Leader and provide a place for nature based learning. Each session involves specific tasks and activities through which children learn holistically and develop a range of social and personal skills that help equip them for life. Activities can include: making dens, looking at insects, collecting sticks, tying knots, building and enjoying a campfire, whittling wood or just playing in mud!
At Isbourne Valley School we are extremely lucky to have grounds that allow us to offer our children regular opportunities to take part in Forest School.
