Forest Schools at Finchale
Pupils from Finchale Primary School took part in a six week Forest School programme in June and July 2014. Dressed in sturdy shoes and waterproofs the children enjoyed getting dirty and exploring the natural world without restriction. All of the activities that the children completed were designed to enhance curriculum delivery and build upon the learning and experiences of the previous session. From shelter building to fire lighting the children had an excellent time, increased in confidence, motivation and enthusiasm to learn whilst also developing important social skills, all whilst learning about the natural world.
