Forest School

Forest Schools originated in Denmark in the 1950s as a way of teaching children about the environment. All the children at Highfield Infants' participate in Forest School sessions where they learn practical and social skills and are taught to understand health and safety issues.  Activities include shelter building, creating stick men, potion making, identifying trees, birds, flora and fauna and getting muddy! 

To find out more about the ethos of Forest School and how we use Forest School at Highfield Infants' School you can read the presentation below.
