Forest School

Forest School is a long term process of regular visits in a woodland.

Forest School sessions are on Wednesdays. Each class has Forest School for a block of six sessions, each session is appropriately 4 hours. We embrace the weather and sessions run throughout the year.

At ASSR years R - 4 use our site at School, at the bottom of the field. An enclosed space with established hedgerows, trees, grass and pond area.

Years 5-6 visit a private beech glade in a woodland estate close enough to walk to from school.

Forest School allows children opportunities and experiences outside in nature,

ranging from cooking, building dens, using tools, nature crafts and lots of free play.

Forest School is run by Louise Montebello who is currently completing her Level 3 Forest School Practitioner qualification.
