With the blustery and breezy Autumn in full flourish it’s the perfect season to start this year’s Forest School at Redwood Park Academy.
The aims of Forest School here are to link the core curriculum to practical activities, taking the classroom outdoors for a sensory experience.
Forest School is aimed at all key stages whether it be year 7 introducing the pupils to our environment and pond area or through years 8 & 9 building on previous skills learned in a local woodland area. furthermore, into Modern World in key stage 4, looking at urban and suburban lifestyles.
Forest School offers pupils regular opportunities to develop confidence, self-esteem and resilience. The pupils learn in safe woodlands whilst taking on challenging activities. Forest School provides a holistic approach to pupils creating an atmosphere to progress socially, emotionally, physically as well as cognitively. Taking this approach to learning allows for an inclusive curriculum considering each individual pupil.
We look forward to sharing the adventures of Forest School at Redwood Park with you throughout the seasons.
