Forest School is an ethos which encourages the development of children’s emotional and physical
development through outdoor play, activities and exploration in a woodland environment.
At Gainsborough Primary School, we will be helping the children to connect with and learn through their local environment; Wick Woodlands. The philosophy of Forest School is to encourage and inspire individuals of any age through positive experiences and participation in engaging and motivating achievable tasks. These tasks, amongst other things, will set out to develop:
- Problem Solving
- Ability to establish boundaries for risk taking
- Communication and language skills
- Physical development
