Forest School

At Branfil we introduced Forest School to our curriculum in 2020.
Forest School is a child centred, holistic approach to learning that takes place in a natural setting. We are currently developing an area of our school site to use for our Forest School sessions and also make use of the woodland area just outside our school gate. 
Whilst at Forest School children participate in an exciting and engaging range of games and activities and through these children will be supported with developing their self-confidence and self-esteem, social skills, physical skills, creativity, resilience and perseverance. We strongly believe in the benefits of Forest School, which is supported by many studies into the positive effects of children spending time in nature and it is an exciting opportunity for children to learn beyond the classroom.
Currently Reception and Year 1 have two blocks of Forest School throughout the school year, and we are expanding our programme to other year groups too. 
Check back soon to see what we have been getting up to in our recent Forest School sessions!
