Forest School

Gig Mill Forest School was launced in 2014.  This year reception classes have all had the opportunity to explore outdoor learning in this exciting way.

halfwidth_forest quote.JPGResearch shows that Forest School is a child-initiated, educational process that promotes, observes and supports the social, emotional and physical development of children and young people in an outdoor woodland environment.

Forest School offers children opportunities to achieve success, develop confidence and self esteem through hands on learning experiences in our 'copse' area.

The aim of Forest School is to use the outdoors to inspire and engage learners.  Children go to woodland areas that we have in
school and take part in activities that will help promore their social, physical, intellectual, creative, emotional and spiritual development.  Forest School at Gig Mill hopes to promote a healthy lifestyle for the children by being outside and active but the children will benefit in many other ways such as being outside and active but the children will benefit in many other ways such as being able to work as a team and all the activities are designed to build self-esteem within each child.
