We are so excited to have begun our Forest School journey at Ampney Crucis School. Giving the children the opportunity to take part in Forest School is hugely beneficial in the development of the whole child and enables them to develop essential key life skills:
- Social skills
- Collaboration and team work
- Knowledge and understanding of the environment
- Problem solving
- Physical development
Currently the Reception and Key Stage 1 children have a weekly session where we follow the Forest School ethos. This enables the children to learn new skills as well as having the opportunity to follow their own interests and continue to work on a project until they have accomplished their desired outcome.
