Forest School is a unique approach to learning which offers children the opportunity to learn through experience in a woodland setting. Research has shown that outdoor learning supports and extends children’s problem solving abilities; their ideas in response to new challenges and their resilience to persevere and persist at new tasks. It can develop a love of nature and in turn promote healthier lifestyles through fresh air and physical activity. Much of the process is child initiated, which ensures that children are engaged and motivated to learn, particularly those who find conventional classroom education challenging and this in turn can have a positive impact upon behaviour and attitudes to learning back in the classroom. Children and young people develop holistically through provision of achievable tasks and support to take managed risks in an outdoor setting, which builds their confidence and self-esteem.
