Forest Schools

I am currently completing my forest schools level three qualification here in the UK. I have been spending a lot of time researching ideas for forest schools for older children in KS1 and KS2. A lot of resources and sites seem to focus on the EYFS. However I believe that allowing older children to access this kind of education is so important.

I will be sharing all of my Forest schools ideas and activities here for free. I hope you enjoy them:
