My special Forest School moment: a recent one has to be watching a three year old build a pirate ship in the woods following a treasure hunt with lots of Forest school friends and learning about using oars to move the ship through the sea. He used his own initiative to decide that the ship needed a flag and a steering wheel and being very satisfied and proud of the result.

I love Forest School because: The possibilities are endless. They are endless for play and learning experiences, but also endless for learning about the world both within and beyond the self and making sense of it. I also love forest school when I witness how it can bring people together and be carried into the life beyond the woods. I feel that this is really something to be treasured.
