Forest School Activities Part 2 Of 5

About This Primary Resource

This is part of a collection of 5 documents available on Early Learning HQ featuring activity ideas relating to the Forest School approach. These documents have been produced as a practical resource with ideas and activities that promote a healthy disposition to learning outside. They have been written with the intention of supporting primary schools in a variety of circumstances, from those with limited outdoor facilities to those with woodlands on their doorstep. The multi-sensory nature of these activities are intended to support all areas of learning all year round.
