Forest school is the ideal location for our children to go out and explore, have fun and learn. Forest School is an inspirational concept providing learning opportunities through practical activities in an outdoor environment. Children enjoy the freedom to explore and experience the natural world in all seasons and in all weathers.

Our aims during a forest school session at Hedworthfield are;

  • To give every child the opportunity to take ownership of their learning.
  • To develop practical skills
  • To build self-esteem, confidence and a positive mind-set by providing achievable yet challenging opportunities.
  • To provide a bespoke delivery of the session where every child’s individual learning style is met.
  • To develop social and team building skills, thus enabling the child to work better within group activities within the classroom.
  • To provide a secure happy and welcoming environment where children feel challenged, relaxed and inspired.
  • Provoke curiosity that encourages further exploration.
