What is Forest School?
Having fun and enjoying the great outdoors whatever the weather!
Forest School provides a regular opportunity for children to learn about and experience our natural environment, work as a team, co-operate with others, use their own initiative, and develop skills in how to assess and handle risks for themselves.
Basic practical woodcraft skills and tool use.
Lighting and cooking on our campfire.
Exploring and finding out more about nature.
Games, challenges, den building and much much more!
Ruth is a qualified and experienced Forest School Leader, successfully running Peak Time groups since September 2012.
Forest School takes place every Monday and Tuesday after school, starting in the first week of the new September Term, and running right through to the Summer. We are based in the small wooded area next to the Hathersage school field. We have a shelter to act as cover from wet/cold weather. Appropriate clothing and hot drinks ensure everybody stays happy and warm.
In the event of very windy conditions or extreme cold we use a classroom in the top school building and continue our activities indoors.
