Teachers TV: Outdoor Learning with Forest School

The Forest Schools concept comes originally from Scandinavia where there has been a long tradition of encouraging young children to play and learn in the outdoors, in ‘Getting Out of the Classroom.

A group of Year 1 children from Charlbury School, Oxfordshire, and their teacher Gill Senior, make one of their regular visits to a local wood. The children have been visiting these woods every fortnight from the moment they started in reception, learning about the environment, how they handle risks and how they use their own initiative to solve problems and co-operate with others.
