Forest School at Great Linford
At our school we believe that outdoor learning is an important part of a child's development. 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 with trees. Forest School is a specialised learning approach that sits within and compliments the wider context of outdoor and woodland education.
Children throughout the school are able to access the outdoor learning and develop confidence and a greater understanding of the natural environment around them. Throughout their sessions, children also access the PE curriculum and learn about the importance of active and healthy lifestyles.
Year 5 at Forest School
Going for the John Muir Award
Children have been learning all about John Muir to work towards receiving an award. They have been using natural resources to create portraits of the conservationist who lived in the 19th century. Some children even had a go at being tied in a tree just like John Muir did to experience how a tree would feel in a storm.... luckily for us we've had a calm and sunny afternoon!
