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.
It may be cold and damp outside but that doesn't stop us from getting out in the fresh air! The children at Great Linford are loving being back at Forest School.
