Forest Schools at St Giles

One of St Giles key focusses is Outdoor Learning. We believe outdoor learning has numerous benefits and positively feeds back into the classroom environment!

Therefore....

Forest School is something that has been introduced as of September 17, and is a fantastic way of supporting emotional and physical development. We want to encourage and inspire our pupils through exposing them to fun and creative outdoor experiences. Children will have the opportunity to learn about the natural environment, managing risk, problem solve and use their initiative and imagination! 

 

Forest Schools is delivered every Tuesday in the Woodland area at the back of Carlyle infant school. We are aiming for every class to access Forest Schools, where we will be engaging is lots of different activities as part of our creative curriculum. Some of the activities include: Building homes/dens, mini beast hunts, exploring/experimenting with different materials and investigating natural environment (and many more!).
