What is Forest School?
Forest school is an approach to outdoor learning and is about children exploring and experiencing the natural world through practical involvement. Children who experience Forest School are likely to have an increased understanding and interest in the natural environment. They learn about risk and danger and quite naturally become used to looking after and caring for each other.
Some examples of some of the Forest School activities that pupils participate in:
Pupils at Merebrook make good use of the local area to enhance their Forest School sessions. Pupils take part in community litter picks, visit the local woods as well as undertake in seasonal walks around Furzton Lake and the surrounding area.
