The ethos of Forest School is based on a fundamental respect for children and young people and for their capacity to instigate, test and maintain curiosity in the world around them. It believes in children’s right to play; the right to access the outdoors (and in particular a woodland environment); the right to access risk and the vibrant reality of the natural world; and the right to experience a healthy range of emotions, through all the challenges of social interaction, to build a resilience that will enable continued and creative engagement with their peers and their potential. www.forestschooltraining.co.uk
Earthtime’s qualified Forest School leader will facilitate outdoor sessions designed to equip the children with the tools to explore, learn and grow. Activities such as den building, simple knot tying, fire lighting will be used to direct the learning. Earthtime will devise a programme for the sessions however this will change, evolve as we get to know the children, their interests and will be weather dependant.
