Year 1 Forest School

Year one had their first taster of Forest School today.

What is ‘Forest School’?

‘Forest School’ is about using the outdoors to promote confidence, self-esteem and independence. At St John’s we are passionate about developing the whole child, not just their academic ability. The benefits of ‘Forest School’to the children are many. Confidence, behaviour, concentration, independence, social, emotional and physical skills are all developed with positive effects on all areas of the child’s life and learning.
