CURRICULUM – FOREST SCHOOLS
Camp School offers an initiative called Forest School, which is introduced to each class at some point throughout the year.
What is Forest School?
Forest School is an exciting opportunity for children to experience nature and learn outdoors. The experience of learning in the outdoor environment will give the children the opportunity to learn new skills and develop perseverance, independence and responsibilities. These skills can help them to achieve within the classroom.
What should your child wear?
Please send your child to school with clothes to change into. We recommend that the children wear old clothing such as jogging bottoms, leggings and long sleeve tops. Footwear should be closed toed so please send your child with old trainers or wellington boots. The session will go ahead whatever the weather so please send your child with suitable clothing each week.
There is no such thing as inappropriate weather, only inappropriate clothing!
‘Forest School is an inspirational process that offers children, young people and adults, regular opportunities to achieve, and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands on learning experiences in a local woodland environment.’
