Forest School

Yeading Infants have been providing forest school since 2013 and have been able to support training with many people from other schools and children centers. Currently our school has three fully qualified forest school leaders who are very passionate about providing every child in the school with at least 6 or more forest school sessions a year.  The school have invested in a dedicated purpose built classroom for forest school which is currently being built, the children cannot wait for this to finish so that forest school sessions can take place from there. The children have enjoyed watching the building come together by the builders. This pod will provide the children with a space to get dressed, maintain hygiene and discuss the session in a safe and dry place before and after.  

Forest school is a learning experience that respects wildlife and nature. The use of the outdoors enables children to explore in a natural setting and develop a healthy lifestyle. The high proportion of adults encourages children to build self-confidence, yet learn from their mistakes in a safe managed environment. The children learn from cross curricular links and set themselves small achievable targets. They learn to respect nature and each other as Forest school encourages all round development.

The children enjoyed completing the forest school activities, some children were joined by their parents.
