A Day at Forest School

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

A film exploring Charlotte's Wood, a forest school run by Charlotte Atkinson and her team. Here we see the importance of outdoor learning, why children should have time away from their screen devices and how forest school can be beneficial to children with autism.

Agreed! But the outdoors is so great for physical learners too, who learn better by being active!

This is a great depiction of children playing and being in nature. I love how you have a "magic spot" and encourage the the act of appreciating nature with the three S's: sitting, silent and still. Very meditative.

A great exemplar for rethinking how and where kids learn. Just great.

Wonderful video full of awe. Are you able to advise me on helping a fifteen year old with autism on some activities which I can help enable him to do during lock down. We have a decent garden:)
