Forest School

Forest School is a unique educational experience and our Freehold Forest School aims to enhance children’s learning in an outdoor environment. We will provide opportunities for children to develop new skills, confidence and self-esteem whilst engaging with nature and discovering in a world of outdoor play.
Children will learn about the surrounding natural environment, whilst engaging in motivating and achievable tasks. These tasks will aim to:

* develop personal and social skills
* work through practical problems and challenges
* use tools to create, build or manage
* discover how they learn best
* pursue knowledge that interests them
* learn how to manage failures
* build confidence in decision making and evaluating risk
