Many teachers will be noticing the rise and rise of the idea of a Forest School in UK schools. A Forest School, in a nutshell, is when children learn outdoors, generally using resources provided by Mother Nature.
In the summer term, I would like to spend some time with my class using the fantastic grounds at my school. At the moment, I’m thinking that I would like to cover our objectives using the outdoors and the vast green spaces and woodland on our school grounds. The problem is, though, that there is a wealth of information and knowledge out there and I don’t know where to start.
If you are familiar with Forest Schools, what online information can I use for advice and ideas? This could be blogs or websites. Ideally, I’d love to see blogs showing how teachers have used Forest School ideas with Year 3.
The reason I have blogged this instead of tweeting is because I’d like to gather information together in one place. Hopefully people will respond by commenting, and this post will be a resource for others.
If you can help, please do!
