Forest School

Intent 

Forest School allows children to have freedom to explore, play, build, create, imagine, use their senses to experience the outdoor environment and engage with one another. It helps them learn to be curious, resilient, respectful of others and nature, take calculated risks and experience regular success. 

 

“Tynings Forest School participants develop positive relationships with themselves, nature and other people and recognise that they are unique and valuable.” 

 

Forest School at the Tynings 

Mrs Pike is undergoing the Level 3 Forest School qualification and provides Forest School sessions during PPA cover for class teachers. Currently, she works with EYFS, Year 1 and Year 4. Mrs Pike also provides an after-school Forest School session for different year groups throughout the year.  

 

“It seems to me that an understanding of the natural world is crucial for all of us – after all we depend upon it for our food, for the air we breathe and, some would say, for our very sanity.”  

Sir David Attenborough 

 

Opportunities for outdoor learning is encouraged throughout the school in all subjects and year groups to develop an understanding of the world around us and, also in recognition of the research regarding the positive impact of nature on our mental health.
