At Darras Hall we use the outside as an extension to our classroom; we see our forest area as a holistic tool to enhance language, science, geography and other areas of the curriculum.
We enable children to learn through discovering aspects of the natural world that cannot be replicated in the classroom, e.g. frog spawn, habitats or seed dispersal.
Learning in our forest school encourages engagement, listening skills, open communication and practical learning for purpose, e.g. making shelters or replicating natural patterns or animal shapes.
Learning is collaborative with regular feedback from the children.
Our aim is to inspire a sense of wonder and respect for the natural world.
Forest Adventurers Club
We hold a weekly Forest Adventurers club i our forest area. This is an exciting opportunity for your child to learn about and experience nature in a familiar outdoors setting. They will learn to think creatively, problem solve, take safe risks, interact with one another and follow their own path for learning. For more information contact Miss Hordon.
