Forest School Programme
Y Services will work with your staff and children to develop and deliver a Forest Schools programme.
Sessions usually take place weekly over a period of time but can be adapted to suit your group.
Forest school practitioners will explore a local location for your group to use for the duration of the course. Risk Assessments and Site Assessments will be carried out by the team and agreed with the school staff team.
For the first session our trained practitioners will travel with the group to the woodland or other outdoor site and that is where the programme will begin. Sessions are child led, but may have a theme which can be linked to the National Curriculum or your own objectives. Children will be encouraged to discover, explore, observe and question what they find in the woods. By being given responsibility for the woods, themselves and the group they are in, social and emotional development takes place as well as a growing attachment to their environment. We will set a number of small achievable tasks for them so their confidence increases over time.
