Forest School

Bute Cottage Nursery is very fortunate to have a Forest School area in our garden.  At forest School we provide a chance to safely explore in the outdoor environment.  We have three qualified Forest School Leaders that guide the children through multi-sensory exploration and investigation of nature.  Forest School provides opportunities for the children to gain confidence, assess risks and extend their learning about the environment in which they live. 

Forest School has been shown to improve physical, motor and communication skills,  improve social skills and knowledge and understanding of the environment.  Increase self-confidence and motivation.  Take risks in a safe and secure environment and share and reflect on achievements.

Activities can include:

Den building

Pond dipping

Using tools to create musical instruments

Mud monsters

Cooking on a camp fire
