Background: Paula has always had an interest in learning outside the classroom. The opportunity came to work with NIFSA in 2014. We undertook a scheme of works that involved going to Cherryvale Playing Fields over a number of months. The pupils and parents think the Forest School sessions are fantastic.
Forest School setting: We regularly use Cherryvale Playing Fields, owned and managed by Belfast City Council. It is only a short walk away. The site has a mixture of everything - a small woodland area and large open area in which to undertake all of our Forest School activities.
