'The Journey to Forest School'

Hello, I am Mrs Lindley and I am Forest School Leader.  I lead Forest School sessions for KS1 and KS2 children.

When we are in Forest I am known to the children by my Forest School name, “Anna Anaconda”. 

I believe Forest School promotes self learning through exploration and free play.  Children develop many skills that are hard to teach in a classroom. Nature presents with so much wonderful science, creativity, holistic development, resilience and respect for nature that you can't help but be absorbed by it.

I strongly believe children learn through relationship with others, opportunities to test themselves and challenge themselves. Forest School is not focused on product, it’s all about process.
