At Selborne Primary School we understand the importance of outdoor learning and with the addition of our on-site Forest School, strive to enhance opportunities for children to learn in a more natural outdoor setting. We endeavour to offer children, throughout their Selborne journey, the opportunity to learn about nature, through nature directly. We hope children at Selborne will develop a deep and lifelong love and respect for the natural environment.
Forest School helps to enhance learning, increase self- esteem, independence, risk taking, language and much more. We believe that each child has:
- A right to play and access the outdoors.
- The right to explore the natural world.
- The right to experience a healthy range of emotions through team work and social interaction.
All children in Reception, Year 1, Year 2 and the ARP receive a block of at least 6 weeks Forest School sessions, run by Ms Bowen and supported by an LSA. After school clubs also offer older children the opportunity to experience Forest School throughout the year.
