At Trosnant Schools, our Forest School is run by a qualified level three practitioner. The Forest School ethos is one that offers children a chance to; achieve, develop confidence, manage their own risks, connect with nature and build self-esteem. These experiences take place in a woodland or natural environment with trees through a real life - hands on approach. We believe that everybody should have the chance to learn through self-directed play and exploration, thus building strong relationships. Through regular access to the woodland or natural environment the children will be given the opportunity to develop new skills which can range from both practical and analytical.

During Forest School children may build a shelter, take part in a camp fire or use woodworking skills to create and build objects from the woodland around them, enjoy the freedom of the swing from the tree top swing, watch the birds using binoculars and make a mess in one of the mud kitchens. The children also have the chance to lead and take part in looking after the schools fruit and vegetables, here they learn about the importance of healthy eating and about the seasonal fruit and vegetables we can grow.
