Forest Schools at Bannerman Road

At Bannerman Road Community Academy we provide Forest Schools sessions for all children from Nursery to Year six.

The Forest School approach to learning places the child at the centre of their own education and emphasises the importance of children being allowed to explore the natural world with appropriate support. Forest School encourages children to explore and develop their own interests in an outdoor environment. Forest Schools offer children opportunities to play freely, solve problems, take risks and follow their own interests and ideas. Enabling children in this way promotes self-confidence and self-esteem.

In Forest Schools we use our school values in every activity we do.
our activities include:-
bug hunts
digging
mud kitchen
We also enjoy den building, climbing, cooking and learning about fires and fire safety
