WHY WE DO FOREST SCHOOL.

‘Forest School is an inspirational process, that offers children and young people the opportunities to achieve, develop confidence and self-esteem, through hands-on learning experiences in a local woodland environment.’  (Definition by Forest School England).

At Abbeywood, we are committed to developing the whole child, not just their academic ability.  Forest School offers child-led learning and allows children to:- use a range of natural materials, work effectively as part of a group, to use gross and fine motor skills to construct items, explore the natural environment using their senses, show an increasing awareness for their own and others safety as well as celebrate personal and group achievements.

 

Research has shown that Forest School can have a positive impact on ‘…children’s personal, social and emotional development, and on their language and communication skills.  Also significant is that these benefits are considerable for boys as well as girls and for children of all abilities including those with a range of learning and emotional difficulties’.  (www.worcestershire.gov.uk)
