Forest School

Forest School sessions

Longparish Little School are now running Forest School sessions on Wednesdays and Thursdays. A Forest School is an innovative educational approach to outdoor, nature-based play and learning, and in this case, is set within the beautiful woodland environment around Longparish village.

One of the great benefits of Forest Schools is that it helps children develop many skills that are harder to teach in a classroom setting. They also encourage children to be active with lots of physical activities to help develop both fine and gross motor skills.

Claire Nash, Longparish Little School Manager, explains: "Every week, come rain or shine, the children have the opportunity to learn about our local natural environment through play. They are learning to handle risks, and importantly use their own initiative to solve problems and work together."


Please contact us for more information on how your child can attend our Forest School sessions.
