Forest School Curriculum

Cathedral Primary School is committed to giving children the opportunity to learn in the outdoor environment and receive the benefits and experiences the natural world has to offer. Taking learning outside is beneficial in promoting children’s self esteem, wellbeing, creativity, collaborative learning, team building and problem solving all through hands on experience. Forest School aims to foster resilient, courageous, and independent learners.  Children are encouraged to be creative and curious, explore and take managed risks. 

 

Our Forest School sessions take place in private woodland adjacent to Bristol Cathedral Choir School playing fields, Beggar Bush Lane, BS8 3TG. The site is continually being developed to give a broad range of experiences.  It has a log circle base camp with a permanent fire site, woodland swing and see-saw, woodland train, bug hotels, mud kitchen, tippy tappy hand wash station and dedicated tool area. It is a truly magical site with ample space for children to learn and play.
