Queen's Park Infant Academy Forest School

I’m a strong believer in encouraging children to venture from their comfort zone, to experience what could be seen as high risk activities to build them up as well-educated young persons with outdoor based skills. I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to learn outside, I now want to give children that opportunity to start their outdoor adventure of their own.

This term I will be working with our newest arrivals at Queens Park, reception. To start with I will be setting up in their classroom different forest school related activities for the children to complete. This will include the touch and tell test which we did in September. we brought in different items from the forest school area such as twigs, dirt, pinecones and conkers. The children were blindfolded then had to guess by touching the item what it was. Everyone did amazingly well and I was very impressed by their perseverance and not quitting when they got one wrong. 

At our amazing after school club, we will be doing lots of forest activities. Last week we bug hunted finding some very interesting looking creatures and we have built our very own shelters and water tested them!! book here after-school-clubs
