Forest School Learning

Pupils at Longwood access regular Forest School sessions in the wooded area within our school grounds.

 They follow a developmental curriculum which involves learning how to use full size tools, how to build fires safely and how to build shelters. 

It also includes knowledge based and experiential learning of the flora and fauna and allows children to observe the changing seasons at first hand. Once groups are established and routines are set up, the projects develop, through a child led approach,  back into the indoor setting.
