Forest School

Forest School enables children to explore and learn in a hands-on sensorial way. Its philosophy is to nurture and inspire individuals through positive outdoor experiences. By participating at their own pace in engaging, achievable activities in a natural setting each child reaps the benefits. Forest School enables children to express themselves and to converse with others more confidently, to be more empathic towards others and the natural world and lead their own play responsibly and safely.

Sessions at Notley Green are led by a Level 3 trained Forest School Leader in the school’s wildlife garden, in the school grounds or at a local nature reserve.

Activities are mostly child-led and have included:- scavenger hunts and  mini beast safaris, den building, mud kitchen ‘cookery’,  tree planting and gardening, fire lighting and campfire cooking, using bush craft tools, natural art and music, building habitats and birdwatching.

When it was created, our school community and The Friends of Notley Green supported us with generous donations of money, time and resources to build our dream Wildlife Garden. Over the Summer term we will be revisiting the plan and renewing the area as part of our 'Nature's Voice' whole school project.
