Year of Forest School accreditation: 2015

Background: Began with Karen at the end of the academic year 2014 and finished the observed lessons the following school year. I received word on the 24th April 2015 that I had successfully completed by Level 3 Forest School. I found the experience very enjoyable and gained some great ideas from both Karen and Brian.

Forest School setting: Since becoming a Forest School I have taken each year group for 6 week blocks. They have all really enjoyed the experience and look forward to their next week block the following year. We have a small area at the side of the school which we use, we are hoping to organise a trip to Muff Glen to complete our 6 week block with Primary 4 in the next few weeks.
