We are lucky to have a wonderful existing wooded area within the school grounds. Our wish is that all the children in the school will experience Forest School in every year of their time at Whitfield Aspen.
Forest Schools is to encourage and inspire individuals of any age through positive experiences and participation in engaging and motivating achievable tasks and activities in a woodland environment, helping to develop personal, social and emotional skills: Independence, Self-discovery, Confidence, Communication skills, Raised self-esteem.
Forest Schools has demonstrated a success with all children, of all ages and abilities. By visiting the same woodland on a regular basis and through play and exploration, learn about the natural environment, how to handle risks and most importantly to use their own initiative to problem solve and collaboration with others, whilst having lots of fun!
