Oracy and Communication

Communication is a process.I believe  being able to communicate is the most important of all life skills. It is what enables us to pass information to other people, and to understand what is expressed to us in many ways.The sensory experiences provided by Forest School helps prompt language development,interaction as a group and development of social skills.Improving communication skills has a positive effect on a child's self-esteem and their personal,holistic and emotional development.

Have a look what we have been up to during our sessions.
