A fully inclusive Forest School
At C.I.T. Academies we believe everyone is an individual and that children need activities to support their learning. We have a responsibility to ensure we stimulate them enough to enhance their learning process. We believe we can support this with a Forest School Programme. We aim to enthuse and educate our students and achieve this through outdoor learning.
A Forest School is the way!!! This offers outdoor learning at its best getting children out into the fresh air and discovering nature, is a priceless opportunity to offer them.
Over the past 18 months we have been working hard to source a Woodland that will work for our schools and working hard to raise money to fund our new Forest School.
Works have begun and the Forest School is really beginning to take shape. There are now pathways following a sensory circuit around the woodland, most importantly, this is also accessible to wheelchairs. There are sensory stations around the circuit with bamboo musical instruments. There is a fire pit area and a spectacular outdoor classroom made from natural materials which is positioned right in the centre of the woodland, taking advantage of all the wildlife around.
All areas of the curriculum will benefit from students being able to access this wonderful natural environment. The Forest School will be timetabled from September for all pupils to enjoy!
