Forest School Workshop

This was an opportunity for parents and carers to visit the beautiful woodland we use for our Forest School sessions and to find out more about why we take our students to the woods and what we get up to whilst we’re there!

Everyone enjoyed tea, coffee and a chat around the camp fire, then there was time to explore the woods and enjoy the sensory experience of being alone outdoors in a natural environment. We put our trust in each other with a blindfold sensory nature game, then discussed the Forest School approach to learning, dynamic risk assessment and the practicalities and safety aspects of taking children and young people with additional needs to the woods. 

Thank you to all the parents who came and took part so enthusiastically in our first Forest School workshop
