Course Content: Are you interested in learning the skills to be able to take your class outside and into a woodland setting more often? Would you like children to be able to spend more time outdoors, in nature, which has huge benefits for their health & well-being as well as their personal, cognitive, and creative development? Forest School, which has been growing in Ireland since 2013 is based on recurring time in nature, it is child-led and designed to develop the children’s relationship to themselves, each other, learning, and nature in a safe and holistic way. We would like to give you a taster of what Forest School is, with the potential to take part in training courses soon.
If you are a primary school teacher and are interested in finding out more about Forest School, myself, and my colleague Ciara Hinksman from Forest School Ireland (formerly Earthforce Education) are running a 2-hour CPD – Introduction to Forest School, in both the Kildare Education Centre, Kildare town and Gaelscoil Uí Fhiaich in Maynooth on the 4th and 11th February 2019, respectively.
