The Forest School

Barn Croft Primary School started a Forest School for Reception and year 1 children in February 2017 with the support of Curious Minds and Friends of St James Park, the local council and of course Stow Brothers. The children head out of school to Low Hall Nature Reserve once a week for a session with their forest school leader Rachel. They cook up mud cakes in the mud kitchen, dig to Australia with leaf passports curious if they'll dig past the London Underground, they read books in the hammock or listen and watch birds and clouds go by, they build tents with tarps and hide inside, they make dens for Red Ted out of twigs and foliage, they hunt for bugs under logs and in their handmade bug hotels, they play games, they explore the space and make crafts out of nature. 

The forest school offers a safe and support environment in which the children can develop physically and emotionally. The ethos is very much child lead allowing children to build their confidence by trying new things and working towards independent thinking. The sessions happen all year round and with thanks to Stow Brothers the children will be kept warm and dry due to a very generous donation which was used to buy wet weather gear. No such thing as bad weather just the wrong clothing. Stow Brothers have been supportive financially but also on a personal level, taking time out to advise and help wherever possible. Truly an estate agent with a soul.
