Our youngest children in school have the opportunity to visit our lovely forest school site regularly, joining Terry, our Forest School leader from Essex Outdoors. In Forest School children get the chance to play, explore and discover. The sessions are all about exploration of our surroundings and Forest School provides children with the ability to transfer their skills they learn into everyday life. The focus is on connecting our children with their beautiful local outdoor environment, giving them the space and freedom to discover, play, explore and learn within a natural, outdoor setting. Improved social skills, greater peer interaction, stronger relationships and better problem solving abilities are all benefits attributed to Forest School attendees. No child can fail at Forest School; they all take something positive from the experience.
We thank George Courtauld for his generosity in allowing us to use his woods, for this wonderful experience.
