Adventures at Forest School

7th Dec 2012

As a Forest School, Outdoor Learning is an important part of our educational philosophy as it enables children to make meaningful and purposeful links with their school curriculum which can then be applied to the real world outside the classroom. Learning is brought to life for the children through participation in Forest Schools, enabling them to develop the skills necessary to prepare them for their next stages of learning. The ability to make choices independently, assess and take their own risks in a safe environment, work as a part of a team and develop inquisitive minds and positive attitudes to learning is critical in helping children progress from learners to leaders. We have been overwhelmed by the response of our children, parents, both current and prospective, and Head’s of local Nursery schools regarding our adoption of Forest Schools across the whole school curriculum. The ability of Forest Schools to enhance and support classroom learning helps to foster a real sense of excitement, wonder and a passion for learning amongst our children. As pictures often speak louder than words, we are excited to introduce video footage of our children in action as part of our newsletter and website content. This clip recorded at a recent Forest School session, sees our Reception class building on the knowledge, skills and understanding they have developed as a result of their participation in the Animal Rehabilitation project, as they investigate Wandsworth Common for possible clues and evidence that this was an area where the wolf may be hiding, and what might we use to build a suitable and safe trap. If you would like to see more videos of our children in action or examples of work that our children have created please visit the Monkey Business Blog.
