What do we need for Forest School?

Forest Schools sessions take place in all weathers, apart from high winds. Waterproof trousers and a waterproof coat with a hood, or a separate hat, ensure that the children keep warm as well as dry, even in wet weather. This also allows the children to get changed quickly when they get back to school. Layers are the most important part of Forest School kit. Suitable footwear is also important to keep socks dry and feet warm! Waterproof, fleecy lined boots are great as they keep feet warm as well as dry. 


On Forest School days the children come to school in their kit, so it is essential on these days the children have a spare pair of shoes to wear indoors, for when they return from their sessions. 


Be prepared.. the children will get dirty and wet; this is all part of the experience - More mud = More fun!!
