What is Forest School?
Forest School is a child-centred inspirational learning process, that offers opportunities for holistic growth through regular sessions. It is a long-term program that supports play, exploration and supported risk taking. It develops confidence and self-esteem through learner inspired, hands-on experiences in a natural setting. ( Forest School Association).
We are so lucky at Sacred Heart to have such wonderful grounds to be able to have our own Forest School. Our environment is being developed but we already have a lovely natural learning circle and our children are enjoying forest school sessions.
