Year 1 Forest School


We are excited for Year 1 to take part in Forest School starting from Summer Term 2022!

Our Forest School trained staff in Key Stage 1 is Miss Speake.


‘Forest Schools’ are a Scandinavian concept and were introduced into Britain in the 1990s.  We introduced the concept to Stamford Park in September 2016 for our EYFS children because of its excellent reputation for developing children’s self-esteem and their speech and language skills. 


Primarily, Forest Schooling has a wonderful effect on children’s social and emotional development. They become more confident and independent, and they learn to manage the risks they encounter (in a supported environment).

They have time to build on their experiences from Reception and follow their own interests to become engrossed in what they are doing. They have the opportunity to build dens and climb trees - all those experiences that children should have.  As their confidence grows, they learn to use tools and learn about the outdoor environment - about birds and trees, flowers and insects.  They experience and understand the weather and seasons.
