Forest School

Magdalen Gates Forest School Handbook

We are very excited to be at the start of our Forest School journey.
What is Forest School? 
Forest School has developed from the Scandinavian education system and is about children and young people building self esteem, resilience and independence through exploring and experiencing the natural world. Forest School is a long term programme delivered by trained practitioners within a natural environment; in our case our own Forest School area in the KS2 play ground.   Each Forest School programme is planned to meet the needs of individuals in that group and is continuously developed as the learners  grow in confidence, skills and understanding.
At the moment, Forest School is taking place once a week with a small group of KS2 children from years 3-6.  In the Spring, 2 sessions will take place involving Years 1, 2 and 3.  We will go out in all seasons!
