Forest School

Forest School is an innovative and inspiring approach to learning that seeks to encourage, motivate, engage and inspire children through positive outdoor experiences.


‘Forest school is a specialised learning approach that sits within and compliments the wider context of outdoor and woodland education’.  (Forest School Association 2017)


Forest School sessions benefit children at Littleport Primary School in a number of ways:


  • Builds confidence and self-esteem
  • Develops problem solving skills
  • Helps to build positive relationships and teamwork
  • Promotes good mental health and wellbeing
  • Supports physical development
  • Allows participants the time and space to develop skills, interests and understanding through practical hands-on experiences.
  • Develops a greater understanding of and respect for living things in our local area


Where is the Forest?

At Littleport Primary school we are fortunate enough to have our own forest. Reception children have weekly forest school sessions and children from key stage 1 and 2 attend six weekly sessions in a block each year.


Whilst at forest school, our children are able to explore and identify the wildlife living in amongst the trees, experiment in the mud kitchen, build shelters, cook on the campfire, climb trees and much more!
