We will implement these actions by...
Children in Year 4 attend a six week block of forest school sessions throughout the school year. During this time they will develop their outdoor learning skills by taking part in activities such as tool use and fire lighting. During the six weeks, the children design and develop their own fantastic project idea to make using the skills they have learnt.
Throughout Forest School, children learn about respecting, caring for and sustainably using the natural environment. They develop a love of the woodlands by playing games, exploring and den building using natural materials.
Confidence is developed in learners by encouraging independent thinking skills. Children are given opportunities to self-lead their own games, projects and creations.
Across the curriculum, we have identified opportunities for Outdoor Learning to take place in all year groups enabling ‘hands on’ learning and instilling a love of nature.
