Supporting cross curricular learning
Forest schools help to support a wide range of benefits. Research now backs up what forest school practitioners have known all along – that children and young people are stimulated by the outdoors and typically experience, over time, an increase in their self belief, confidence, learning capacity, enthusiasm, communication and problem-solving skills and emotional well-being.
At Mansfield Primary Academy, we don't want Forest school to be seen as a standalone lesson. We use Forest Schools to further enrich the children's curriculum to bring learning to life and embed what they are taught within the classrooms.
Forest Schools at Mansfield has clear links to subjects. A guide to these are attached below.
