Welcome to 'The Meadow', Hampton's very own Forest School!
In March 2018 we will be opening our fantastic new forest school at Hampton!
This week we have started our pilot programme and have been working with small groups of children from Year 2 and Year 5 in The Meadow. The children have the opportunity to explore and take part in various activities during the afternoon, such as mini beast hunting, den building and helping to make firewood! Please take a look at our photos of the children's adventures!
Forest School is a distinctive method of outdoor education which allows children to become independent, resilient, reflective learners that are able to openly communicate and work in a team. Forest School offers children opportunities to achieve, develop their self-esteem and evoke a curiosity about the world around them. Children are encouraged to take controlled risks in order to achieve small but rewarding tasks, using their own personal learning style in order to succeed.
