Forest School

Forest School at Yew Tree offers unique outdoor learning experiences. It has many benefits, from encouraging curiosity and nurturing a love of science to developing empathy for the environment and heightening classroom outcomes. Forest School not only provides opportunities for children to take their learning outdoors, but also develops many skills that are sometimes hard to teach in the classroom.  


  • It supports hands on active learning
  • It embeds academic learning across the curriculum 
  • It helps to develop resilience, confident and independent children 
  • It offers risk and challenge
  • It promotes active, healthy lifestyles 
  • It encourages children to look after themselves, each other and their world
  • It improves communication and social skills 
  • It supports mental and spiritual health



Forest School will take place once a week for Reception children.







Children are required to bring in a change of suitable outdoor clothing and footwear to change into for their weekly session. For more information click here.
