An Introduction to Forest School

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Here at the Tortworth Arboretum, Jemma Robinson - from Robinson`s Discovery Tree - speaks passionately about the premise of Forest School - to provide children and young people with the opportunity for experiential learning and play within the natural environment. Jemma is keen to encourage access, exploration and enjoyment of woodlands - allowing children the chance to connect with nature and to develop skills such as safe tool use, as well as detailed knowledge of their natural surroundings. The Forest School approach is to offer frequent, regular sessions over time, to layer the learning, so that the children feel challenged, creative and confident, as well as nurturing a life-long love of the natural world. http://www.robinsonsdiscoverytree.co.uk/. http://tortwortharboretum.org .
