Seekers Forest School

Forest School is an opportunity to boost self-esteem through hands-on outdoor learning experiences, to stimulate curiosity about nature and empower children to gain knowledge about themselves and the world around them. 

This year we are offering the opportunity to all Reception and Year 1 children to take part in Forest School once a week for half a term. The classes will alternate each half term to ensure that all children get to experience the changing seasons. Although these groups are larger than before, we believe it will enable us to offer a year-round experience, allowing the children to observe the changes in the woodland. 

The Forest School provision will be led by Jessica Roberts, an experienced Forest School Practioner and qualified teacher. We are also fortunate to have wonderful volunteers to support the sessions, alongside class TAs who will have the opportunity to observe their class in a different environment. 

We will explore the creatures and plants of our woodland and through games and creative activities, we will come to understand them better and build our own relationship with the woods. We will take part in different kinds of activities: most of these will involve working with each other, using tools and natural materials, like clay, sticks, leaves, rope and string.  

Each term will be a bit different depending on what is around us in the woods, The weather and each child’s interests.  

We will run Forest School on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons. Reception will be on a Tuesday and Year 1 on a Wednesday.  

Please see the leaflet attached for further details of recommended clothing.
