What will they learn?

Forest School encourages children to explore their own innate learning in the richest classroom we have – the world. We believe children need:

  • to be more active
  • more independence
  • more creativity
  • more play
  • more challenge
  • more real-life experiences

Wild Learning programmes work to maximise the emotional, social and developmental benefits of education, but in terms of ‘what they learn’ we teach children:

  • how to use tools
  • how to make objects and art out of natural materials
  • how to make and use fire safely
  • how to stay warm and comfortable whatever the weather
  • how to identify plants and animals
  • how to communicate and work as part of a team
  • how to value the natural environment and use it sustainably
