Why is my child doing Forest School?
Our aim at Drayton is to give children the opportunity to develop confidence through learning in environments other than the classroom. As they become familiar with outdoor learning they can take their new-found confidence into school and into other areas of their lives.
What can I expect my child to be doing during Forest School?
During their sessions they will be experiencing a wide range of activities from den building and fires to learning about the changing seasons and how to maintain the area and not damage the environment.
Where is Forest School?
We were lucky enough to be supported by FODSA to create a magical area in our school grounds which contains our pond, a variety of trees for climbing and to observe through the seasons. There are path ways that twist and wind and great areas for children to take risks in a safe and secure environment.
