Our Forest School offers hands-on learning experiences in woodland and the natural environment. At Merritts Brook, children in the early years have the opportunity to learn outdoors on a regular basis within our own forested area. Miss King, our forest school leader, works with staff to plan sessions and children benefit enormously from learning out in the open. Our Forest School is nature-based community where our trained practitioner nurtures learner-led exploration and discovery, nurturing meaningful experiences for positive lifelong impacts. Wellbeing is the foundation of our practice and through recognising the social, emotional and physical needs of our pupils we provide the guidance and facilitation for our time in nature. Through creating learner inspired experiences based on exploration and discovery, we recognise opportunities to mentor holistic growth over the course of long-term programmes.
