Forest Schools and Learning
It is great fun to take the classroom out of doors but Forest Schools can also improve academic studies.
Teachers are finding that children are better able to concentrate when they are learning outdoors. More importantly students themselves find learning easier in the classroom when outdoor education is part of the school curriculum.
Along with Learning skills, students who participate in Forest School’s programmes are enhancing their Social Skills and Communication skills as well as developing resilience and the ability to persist at tasks.
