Extending Forest School

At Brontë House, we are thrilled to announce we are extending our forest school programme to all year groups at Ashdown and Brontë. This innovative initiative will see weekly sessions held throughout the academic year, enriching the educational experience for students across the whole school. 

The introduction of forest school into the curriculum signifies a holistic approach to learning, encompassing physical, emotional, social, and cognitive development while instilling a deep-rooted appreciation for the environment. By immersing students in nature, we aim to nurture a sense of wonder and curiosity, encouraging them to explore, learn, and grow in a natural setting. 

Students can look forward to a wide array of engaging activities during forest school sessions, including the construction of dens, crafting tree faces, building nests, exciting scavenger hunts, playful water activities, and the mastery of fire building skills. These activities promote teamwork and foster creative talent, as well as promoting a love for, and understanding of nature. Furthermore, our Friday after-school Outdoor Adventure Activities (OAA) Club offers additional opportunities for children to participate in team-building exercises, as well as hands-on experiences in fire and den construction, fostering a sense of camaraderie and outdoor exploration.
