This year (2021-2022) we have begun our exciting outdoor learning programme down at Malcolm's Meadow!

Forest School is the name given to our outdoor learning sessions in Malcolm’s Meadow at the bottom of Millgate. The children have great fun learning while playing. They certainly enjoy the health benefits of the fresh air but also build other essential skills such as practical maths (measuring trees and working out their age) and develop their literacy by extending their descriptive vocabulary.

 Forest School is a different way to learn, and research shows it benefits children in different, equally valuable ways to more traditional classroom learning. It’s an approach used extensively in countries with high educational standards such as in Scandinavia, and works by developing children’s natural curiosity, and helping them to build resilience

 When they come back to the classroom, we build on the skills learnt, and observe good progress across all areas of development. We believe Forest School is important to help children learn team-work, and self-reliance. It has very clear links to the more academic elements of the curriculum – from learning about the scientific aspects of the fire triangle when using a flint and steel, to exploring and developing Art and DT skills and interpretation, creating and using mapping skills with a Geography link, using Maths for reasoning and measuring, extending descriptive vocabulary which feeds into Literacy, the list is endless!

Sessions follow a series of broad themes with strong curricular links within a structure which enables children to explore and develop their knowledge, skills and understanding through exploration and active learning.

The three underpinning values of Forest School – inspiration, aspiration, and transformation – further embody the character of the Forest School approach to learning as being one in which the individual is encouraged and nurtured on their journey, both educational and personal, learning within, from and alongside nature. Forest School takes place in all weathers to give children the experience of the differing seasons.
