Forest School

Led by Niki Walden
Level 3 Advanced Forest School Leader [Member of the Forest School Association]
& Outdoor Learning Specialist

A friendly, humorous approach that inspires participants through positive outdoor experiences;
enhancing the daily curriculum and offering exciting activities after school.
Children of all abilities develop key skills such as communication, problem solving, leadership, teamwork, appreciation of the contributions and achievements of themselves and others, whilst gaining positive attitudes to challenge and adventure, personal confidence and self-esteem,
in a safe, stimulating and creative environment. 

Currently Class 1 enjoy Forest School sessions on Tuesday afternoons 1.15-2.45pm,

taking their classroom curriculum outdoors!
