Curiculum Overview

As environmentalists

 

EYFS will learn how to safely use and respect basic Forest School equipment including, the fire bowl, storm kettle, bow saw, wood peelers, mallets and hammers. As learners, they will show courage as they embark on using these tools for the first time. We will remind ourselves of the fire triangle and use it to aid us in interactions with the fire, including extinguishing and maininting. We will respectfully interact with our outdoor area by den building and exploring and look for opportunities for awe and wonder. Throughout the term they will step out of their comfort zone and learn practical skills to help them through their 7 year Forest School journey. Their resilience will be tested as they improve their skills and encounter new challenges. They will enhance their creativity by self lead play and exploration in a wild environment. These new experiences will increase their self worth. As they reflect on their first year in Forest School, they will acknowledge times of adversity and celebrate  much they have learnt and grown with a celebration ceremony and picnic
