Forest School

“Forest School is an inspirational process that offers children, young people and adults, regular opportunities to achieve, and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands on learning experiences in a local woodland environment”

Little Rascals Forest School

The forest school we attend is set in beautiful woodland in a small village just outside Melton. It is run by a fully qualified level three forest school leader, who has relevant outdoor first aid qualifications.

The philosophy of forest schools is to encourage and inspire individuals of any age through positive outdoor experiences. By participating in engaging, motivating, and achievable tasks and activities in a woodland environment each participant has an opportunity to develop intrinsic motivation, sound emotional and social skills.

What do we get up to?

  • Building shelters and dens
  • Minibeast hunts
  • Tree identification
  • ​Natural crafts
  • ​Tree climbing
  • ​Woodland walks and more
Our forest school is enjoyed by all the children who go there, as they are gaining an understanding of the world, the natural environment and everything within it.

So Forest Schools will aim to develop:
  • Self Awareness
  • Self Regulation
  • Intrinsic motivation
  • ​Empathy
  • ​Good social communication skills
  • ​Independence
  • ​A positive mental attitude, self-esteem, and confidence
