Outdoor Learning

Outdoor Learning and Forest School at Haydn


Haydn Primary School has developed a Forest School within the Blackwoods on Hucknall Road and in the Forest Garden at School to give children the unique opportunity of experiencing first hand play and learning in a controlled woodland environment. 


At Haydn we are dedicated to giving all children the opportunity to learn and explore outside. Children in F2 and year 1 have regular access to outdoor learning led by a qualified Level 3 Forest School Practitioner.  Whether  they are creating, constructing, using tool, building dens or just chilling in a hammock, there is something for everyone.


Further up the school, each child is able to explore the outdoors for at least 3 sessions in our Forest Garden or at the Blackwoods.

A Forest School approach encourages children to:
• Develop personal and social skills
• Become motivated learners
• Work through practical problems and challenges
• Use tools in safety when building and creating
• Discover how they learn best
• Independently pursue their own areas of interest
• Manage failure effectively
• Grow in confidence
• Make decisions and evaluate risk
• Develop practical skills
• Develop physically and emotionally
• Understand the benefits of a balanced and healthy lifestyle
• Make connections with humans, wildlife and the earth
• Regularly experience achievement and success
• Reflect on experiences and learning
• Develop language and communication skills
• Improve concentration skills
• Question and be curious
