Welcome to our Forest School
Forest School is an inspirational process that offers all learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland environment. At Owston Park Primary School we are very fortunate to have a Forest School site within the school grounds.
The Forest School experience brings learning to life and improves an individual’s ability to work co-operatively whilst offering the opportunities to take risks, make choices and initiate learning.
Forest School sessions take place in all weathers and all seasons. Children and adults must be dressed appropriately as 'there is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing!'. In order to stay safe in our Forest area individuals must wear:
· walking boots or wellies
· long clothing that covers legs and arms
· waterproof coat
· sun hat and sun cream on hot days
The pictures below will give you a flavour of some of the exciting experiences children have had in our Forest School. To find out more, look at our year group pages and on your child's class dojo page.
