Forest School

Here at Sandy Lane Nursery and Forest school our children attend a Forest school session once a week.

We aim to develop the children's respect and love of nature and the outdoors.

The children are encouraged to challenge themselves and take risks.

The children lead their play in the direction their curiosity takes them.


What might happen in the session:

Climbing, balancing, digging

Using basic tools

Mini-beast hunting

Using their senses to explore

Creating meals in the mud kitchen

Looking closely at the changes and growth of trees and plants

Cooking over the fire


We aim for our children to develop the following as a result of their time in the forest:



Pride in their acheivements

Increased vocabularly 


Love of nature
