"Forest School is an inspirational process, that offers ALL learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment with trees.
At Forest School all participants are viewed as:
- equal, unique and valuable
- competent to explore & discover
- entitled to experience appropriate risk and challenge
- entitled to choose, and to initiate and drive their own learning and development
- entitled to experience regular success
- entitled to develop positive relationships with themselves and other people
- entitled to develop a strong, positive relationship with their natural world
(Forest School Association)
At MDCPS, we enjoy sessions at our nearby Forest School across the year. Each class in Key Stage 1 will have the opportunity to access Forest Schools at least 6 times during the year. We love seeing all the children thrive in the outdoor environment, and witnessing their learning and development during their experiences in the Forest.
