Westrop Primary & Nursery

Forest School

Forest School is run by Mrs Powell and Mrs Osbourne and each class will have the opportunity to take part in weekly afternoon sessions in our Woodland area. The sessions involve practical hands-on activities which aim to build up children’s skills, abilities and confidence week by week. Forest School strongly encourages child-led learning, so as the weeks progress, children are given more freedom and responsibility to explore their interests and therefore initiate and direct their own learning. We use natural resources found within our woodland area to stimulate imagination, creativity and investigation. Activities include: shelter building, learning and tying knots, animal tracking, bug hunting, flora and fauna identification, fire lighting and cooking over an open fire.
