At Greenfield’s, we use the Forest School area within the ICC grounds. Forest School is a unique form of outdoor learning, with a play-based and child-led ethos. Pupils engage through practical learning and hands-on activities in a natural setting.
The children are allowed to take risks and explore within a safe outdoor space. Sessions are designed to stimulate each child’s imagination, creativity and desire to explore through activities involving natural materials, shelter-building and natural art.
Each learner gets something different out of Forest School; it can improve confidence, behaviour, physical and social skills, emotional well-being, language and communication, concentration, knowledge and understanding of the world.
Being in nature offers practical, sensory experiences that are suited to the preferred learning styles for many of our learners.
