What do the children do?
As Forest School is child-initiated, activities are planned around the children’s interests and developmental needs. We look to offer a wide variety of activities that meet the needs of the whole child. With this in mind we offer a combination of individual and group activities covering a variety of skills dependent on the ability and experience of the children.
Examples of Forest School activities include:
- Woodland management
- Nature exploration
- Studying wildlife
- Building dens and other structures
- Games (such as team and group games) and invitations for imaginative play
- Woodland and traditional craft
- Art and sculpture work
- Sensory activities
- Scavenger hunts and adventure
- Developing stories and drama, and meeting imaginary characters
- Physical movement activities
- Fires and cooking
- Using tools
