A Typical Day

A Typical Day In A Forest School

Meeting outside the woodland, excitement is in the air. The birds are chirping, the gentle wind rolls across the hills while wellington boots search for puddles.

The woodland has been checked and the equipment is ready to be taken with us, our focus in on the wellbeing, physical and emotional, of each person within our community.
Gathering together, we check in on how each person is feeling and what they wish to explore during their time in nature. We introduce new ideas and invite them to engage our help when they wish to.
The woodland space is a blank canvas, full of textures and materials to enrich the senses and stimulate the learning journeys that we will all undertake. As leaders we have both an idea for the direction of the day should learners need us to provide this for them, but also understand the importance of encouraging them to decide their own direction.
During this time of exploration and discovery, our role as a leader is to provide the nurturing they need whilst also encouraging them to stay with challenge and to make sense of the experiences they have. Through review and reflection their voices are heard, and their emotions are recognised.

 

 
Our time is organic, it develops through interacting with one another, individual interests and leaders introducing new ways of exploring the space and interacting with it. Through an observation and mentoring process, the leaders are both recognising how they can nurture meaningful experiences for life long impact, as well as recognising the impact that the time is having on them. Through recognising the importance of appropriate risk-taking, the leaders mindfully allow learners to challenge themselves, linking these and all other experiences to an area of holistic development, be that social, physical, intellectual, communication, emotional or spiritual.

We conclude our time with review and reflection, checking in on the experiences and emotions of each person, sharing and recognising each individual’s insight.
We aim that each member of our community feels valued and we recognise how we might nurture their individual character and connection with nature and their community.
