FOREST SCHOOL


Forest School is a key approach to learning which underpins the Free Rangers ethos and lies at the heart of what we do.

The principles of Forest School are:

  1. Using nature to provide a real context for learning
  2. Using children’s preferred learning styles; being active, learning through practical outdoor experiences and employing all their senses
  3. Using nature’s resources to facilitate learning

All sessions are delivered by a qualified Forest School practitioner and are fully risk assessed.

Aside from having fun children will develop their communication skills and learn to identify, interpret and manage risk. They will naturally become more inquisitive and learn new levels of perseverance whilst developing physically, socially and emotionally.
