An Introduction to Forest School ~ by WoodlandsTV

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Here at the Tortworth Arboretum, Jemma Robinson, from Robinson`s Discovery Tree (@JRDiscoverytree) speaks passionately about the premise of Forest School - to provide children and young people with the opportunity for experiential learning and play within the natural environment. Jemma is keen to encourage access, exploration and enjoyment of woodlands - allowing children the chance to connect with nature and to develop skills such as safe tool use, as well as a detailed knowledge of their natural surroundings. The Forest School approach is to offer frequent, regular sessions over time, to layer the learning, so that the children feel challenged, creative and confident, as well as nurturing a life-long love of the natural world. http://www.robinsonsdiscoverytree.co.uk/. http://tortwortharboretum.org .

Wonderful! Forest schools are finally picking up here in Italy. Hooray!! My 6 year old doesn't look forward to weekends…because there's no school on Saturdays 🙂

Fantastic! A brilliant outlook on teaching the children to be safe too. My children are lucky they have both gone through Scouting which has taught them invaluable life skills but I truly believe that Nature and growing things should be a mandatory part of the school circular from Nursery age, not only do we teach them early but by their teenage years they would learn the importance of the environment to survive instead of destroying it.
