Under the Canopy Forest School aims to provide an inspiring process for learners of all ages. Forest School takes place outdoors, in a woodland environment near Gerrards Cross, which encompasses a woodland, a dell and a meadow with a wide array of wildlife, flora and fauna. Forest School is a long-term learning process which should comprise of at least six consecutive sessions. It utilises hands-on opportunities outside the structure of an indoor classroom, to develop independence, self-esteem and emotional resilience, among other skills. The learner is the centre of the process whereby they develop curiosity in the outside world through controlled risks.

Outdoor learning activities linked to the Forest School approach include

Build a fire
Cook on a fire
Construct dens and shelters
Identify and learn about animals, plants and trees
Use natural materials for mark making
Hunt for minibeasts
Create a bug hotel, hedgehog shelter, nature art
Grow and maintain plants
Climb trees

It’s Wednesday today (no, REALLY, it is!). And this is what we have lined up from September: Wednesday Woodland Club!We have extended the hours for the Home Educated group so they can get more out of Forest School and also have the opportunity to work through a new accredited course called The Wild Passport. I’ll post a little more about the Wild Passport at a later date but it’s very exciting to be able to offer both things alongside each other. Booking will be online from later today. We’d love to welcome some of last year’s crew back and to invite some new faces into our Woodland Club. .#forestschool #wildpassport #woodlandclub #homeeducation #homeedrocks #homeschooled #wildchild #outdooreducation ...

An exercise in noticing....These bee orchids are extremely hard to spot in the long grass. So delicate and exotic compared to the surrounding flora. Lucky to have these beauties growing in our meadow..#beeorchid #orchidsofinstagram #meadowbeauty #wildflowersuk #summerblooms @ Under the Canopy Forest School ... See MoreSee Less
