Benefits Of Forest School
Children are given vast opportunities to develop their physical strength. Navigating uneven ground, carrying logs, and using tools all helps to develop or improve gross and fine motor skills. Children will gain first-hand experience of the weather and the changing seasons. They also develop their knowledge of our native flora and fauna. Forest School enables children to develop their learning in a different environment. Learning outside allows children to shine and demonstrate skills and knowledge that are often missed inside the classroom. The list really is endless! Most importantly the foundations for learning are really nurtured during Forest School sessions: self-esteem, self-belief, confidence, communication and language, motivation, resilience, and concentration.
