Gordon Primary School

Forest School

Forest School is a vital part of the children's learning in the Foundation Stage and we are very fortunate to have a Forest School site in our school grounds. The Forest Schools concept comes originally from Scandinavia where there has been a long tradition of encouraging young children to play and learn in the outdoors.

The children have been learning about the environment, how to assess and handle risks, how they can use their own initiative to solve problems and how to co-operate with others.

 

Below are some photos of our pupils enjoying Forest School on our school site.
