We are excited to launch our video this week, highlighting some of the things that we get up to at Forever Green Forest School and showing the benefits that Forest School brings to the whole child (and adults too!)
The footage was taken back at the start of October, in the midst of Autumn by an old colleague and friend, Fahim Rashid, who is the director of Kalpona’s Tree Productions.
It was great to capture the beauty of Oxhey Woods in Hertfordshire, where our Parent and Toddler group is based every Monday and Friday morning. The groups are going from strength to strength, with many parents and children coming back each term to continue their Forest School journey with us. We enjoy sharing stories, cooking on the fire and exploring the woods together through the seasons and have received some lovely comments from our latest group:
“I think my child is more adventurous when exploring and has become more observant about things around them when we go for walks.”
“We really enjoy the sessions and it’s great to do something together outside. Thanks for your expert guidance as we do a lot more than I would have thought possible with a pre-schooler e.g drilling, whittling and being around fire. You have opened my eyes too!”
The film also captures our work with a group of Reception children we work with every week. They have come on leaps and bounds in their confidence and social skills so far this year. It really demonstrates how regular time in the outdoors at Forest School can benefit the whole child.
“My daughter absolutely loved it! Brilliant activities even if the weather was not always perfect! But you ladies made it super fun!!”
If you are interested in joining us in the woods or your school would be interested in weekly sessions, please get in contact with us today.
