I have completed my 6-week pilot Forest School Programme. I worked with the special needs group from my local secondary school. We had 8 boys down in the woods with their teacher Ms. Flynn, who is an old schoolmate of mine from secondary school days.
It has been the most amazing learning experience, and I learned a lot from the boys around patience, as in taking our time to do and make things and allowing people to do things in their own time. We spent the 6 weeks building their dens, making fishing rods, playing games, and just being in the woods.
