Forest School

Forest School is a fantastic resource that we have available to us at Woodbridge Primary School.

Forest School engages children with the natural world! Our fully qualified forest school leaders and first-aiders allow the children to ‘Build Learning Power’ through supervised activities such as:-

  • safe fire lighting
  • whittling
  • nature art
  • shelter building
  • games

There are multiple benefits to this kind of learning: building confidence and self esteem; boosting physical and mental health; learning new skills out doors; promoting the importance of team work.
