Outdoor Learning/ Forest School Tool

A tried and tested simple tool to evidence progress in your outdoor classrooom/forest school. We firmly believe the forest school should be 100% child led which ours is but schools needed evidence of progress to secure funding to continue.

This pack contains the following PDF’s:

  • 12 weeks of activities/skills with description to assist the teacher for every year group from foundation - year 6 so that’s 84 activities/skills in total which develop in difficulty or knowledge. We have split them into two 6 weekly blocks as most classes do half a term each year but sometimes one class attends twice during the school year so it gives you the flexibility of running both awards or choosing one. For each 6 week block the child will receive a certificate.

  • A record sheet to list down when each child has achieved the skill so you can evidence and plan.

  • 14 award certificates (optional) which can be easily printed:
    Foundation (Alder & Ash Tree Awards)
    Year One (Beech & Birch Tree Awards)
    Year Two (Cedar & Chestnut Tree Awards)
    Year Three (Elder & Elm Tree Awards)
    Year Four (Holly & Hawthorn Tree Awards)
    Year Five (Maple & Monkey Puzzle Tree Awards)
    Year Six (Spruce & Sycamore Tree Awards)
