Love to Learn and Learn to Love

Forest School engages and inspires our pupils to learn and explore in a woodland setting, whilst teaching self-esteem, team work and how to truly value the stunning natural world"What an amazing Sports Day! Watching the children support and cheer each other on was just lovely and demonstrates, yet again, what a special school All Saints has become"All Saints aims to provide a happy, family atmosphere in a Christian Community which delights in learning in a safe, stimulating environment."I consider my child very lucky to be attending a school that is teaching her, not only the ever-changing curriculum, but also (and far more importantly) that it is fun to LEARN"“There is a good range of high quality additional activities that enrich the curriculum and promote pupil’s development and enjoyment” Ofsted

Forest School at All Saints Infant School

 

The forest is an environment to which we are all entitled, as long as we give it full due respect. We strongly believe that the experiences at Forest School will remain with our pupils at All Saints as a fond memory.

Forest School encourages children to use their own initiative and develop skills through a wide range of largely unstructured, hands on experiences. With the guidance and support of the Forest School leader, children develop to become competent and more self-sufficient learners. Pupils are initiated into leading their own learning, making full use of their creativity and imagination, whilst at the same time learning to love and appreciate the natural world in which we live.

We encourage a level of risk-taking, always under close adult supervision, and actively foster friendships and collaboration between all children and adults present. Forest School activities are always designed to produce success and enjoyment. The aim is that ALL children feel secure and know that their individual contribution is valued.
