What is Forest School?
Forest School is a Danish concept of learning in the outdoor environment. It focuses on building confidence, self esteem, independence, motivation and environmental awareness.
Through organized outdoor activities such as play, exploration and hands on experience, children at High View develop socially, emotionally and intellectually. Our Forest School activities are linked where possible, to our school curriculum themes. All instructions are given verbally, visually and by using practical demonstrations in order to cater for all learning styles. This ensures every child is able to access the curriculum. Activities are broken down into small manageable steps and are quite often child led.
