Inspire, aspire and transform learning for children – Silks Farm Nursery School opens new and exciting Forest School

We are delighted to announce that on Thursday 25th September we officially opened our new Forest School & Nature Reserve. Thank you to all the parents and children who joined us for afternoon tea and a picnic, we hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did.

 

 

The philosophy of Forest Schools is to encourage and inspire children through an innovative, long term, educational approach to outdoor play and learning in a woodland environment.

 

It's all about providing children with unique learning opportunities to explore, learn and play outside.’ Who said a classroom was only for indoors.

 

This wonderful facility provides all of our children with the opportunity to enhance their learning and understanding about the world around them through a range of fun, educational and creative outdoor activities.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For example, the children will learn how to build their own dens from a range of natural construction materials found outside, have fun cooking in the mud kitchen, building camp fires and discovering all the wonderful birds, animals and insects that make the Forest School their home.  

 

The whole experience is designed to allow the children to understand the environment in which they live and the many different ways we can create play outside, with just the fresh air, sound of the birds in the trees, and the ability to believe in the great outdoors!
