Forest Schools

Forest Schools originated in Scandanavia in the early 20th century as a as a way of teaching children about the natural world.  Children spend regular, planned time in a natural environment, discovering and learning at their own pace.  They build confidence and social skills as well as developing the ability to assess safety and manage risks.  Activities cover many areas of the curriculum, and above all, it's healthy and enjoyable!

Children at Longford complete a course of sessions in a designated area on the school site.  They use the school wildlife area to eststablish relationships and safety rules through games and activities. Mrs Jones is our qualified Forest School leader.
