Forest Schools Curriculum Intent

Forest Schools Curriculum Intent

To provide an opportunity for individuals to develop, to learn and to enjoy themselves. To provide a safe and non-threatening environment in which children can take risks, make choices and initiate their own learning.

“Highly effective teamwork ensures that they plan exciting and challenging lessons together, constantly assessing and evaluating their work and that of the pupils.” Ofsted 2018

Introduction to Forest Schools

Introduction to Forest Schools

In Forest School at Kentmere, we deliver our sessions within our school grounds currently with EYFS and KS1. Sessions are planned to develop a new skill, but also allow the children to be free to follow their own interests. Some sessions are linked to our half termly topics depending on what they are and what is being covered.

It’s not all about the end product in forest school it’s the skills that the children learn and skills they can take back into the classroom to help develop learning in all subjects.
