Forest Schools were developed in Scandinavia in the 1950s and focused on teaching children about the natural world. Educationalists have witnessed the impact that it can have on children: improving their confidence and self-esteem. Some of the activities undertaken require the children to work as a whole group or in small team while at other times they work independently. This is the only true Forest School in the area operating all through the year what ever the weather, honoured with a Living Landscape award.
