Treetops Forest SchoolTreetops Forest School Contact: Natalie Jones
Welcome to Treetops Forest School.
Treetops is a privately run Forest School situated five mintues from East Horsley, Surrey which offers a safe environment for children aged 2 years and over. We are available all year round whatever the weather.
All activities that take place are child led to allow children to learn and grow, Forest School staff will be there to extend their learning further if required in a safe and fun environment. It is paramount that children are able to explore the outdoors, as the range of benefits are as follows:
•Encourages problem solving skills
•Enables children to focus
•Reduces anxiety and stress levels
•Enables children to improve thinking skills
Here at Treetops Forest School a typical day may involve making dens, fairy potions, mud pies, whittling sticks, mini beast hotels, singing or reading a story around the campfire while toasting marshmallows or cooking popcorn.

Running Forest School to a Primary school – Countess Wear Community School in Exeter. I cover each teacher during their PPA time and so can meet the children throughout ks 2 every week and build on their skills. I split them into 3 or 4 groups. One group always does some kind of cooking – when weather is right they light the fire, prepare the food, cook and server it up to the class, finally tidying up and washing up! The 2nd group always does ‘Gardening’ or some kind – either weeding, planting, making new beds or picking the crops.
The 3rd / 4th group always follows some kind of curriculum area (years 5 and 6 technology key skills, years 3 and 4 science key skills – this links beautifully with forest management and making things in the forest. Each week the class rotates to a new activity. This is the way I have developed forest school here, but would love to hear how other school organise their time. As you can see my job is far from boring and I love it!
