Forest School

Forest Schools originated in Denmark in the 1950s as a way of teaching children about the environment. All the children at Shalford Infants participate in Forest School sessions either at Tillingbourne Junior School or in our front garden, where they learn practical and social skills and are taught to understand health and safety issues.  Activities include shelter building, creating stick men, potion making, identifying trees, birds, flora and fauna and getting muddy!
