Forest School

Forest School, fun and learning

This is the best kind of classroom:


No walls, just sky and trees.
This is the best kind of classroom:
No radiators, just a gentle breeze.
You can learn well here
As the birds sing, 
About your place
In the scheme of things.
You can make up poems
About woodland flowers,
Why, it’s almost as interesting 
As the Literacy Hour!


This is the best kind of classroom,
It’s a journey through time and space,
From the smallest seed to the largest tree,
This is a forest and a learning place.


This is the best kind of classroom,
Where the seasons don’t happen in books,
Where the learning is watching and thinking and talking,
And everyone notices, everyone looks.
