Our Forest School site with Twyford St Mary's Primary School

Connection, Growth, Exploration, Sustainability

Our Forest School site is situated in the grounds of Hunter's Park in Twyford and is owned and managed by Twyford Parish Council. An area within this site has kindly been donated to Twyford St Mary's Primary School who use it for outdoor learning activities. The area that we use for our Forest School is made up of  trees and Shrubs that boarder the site and it has extensive open grass land, and a fire circle.

"The ethos and principles of
Forest Schools are rooted
in human beings’ close
association with nature” 
(Blackwell, c1988-2020)

“No one will protect what
they don’t care about;
and no one will care about
what they have never experienced”
(David Attenborough)

Learning about the wildlife that inhabits the eco-system of our Forest School site is an important aspect of our teaching and learning. The participant’s interactions and relationship with the Forest School space will be the corner stone for all of the work, learning, play and self-development which will take place.

The powerful connections we make with our environment  is known as "Environmental Identity".

At Canopy Forest School we learn to identify and learn the key characteristics of our woodland ecosystem. We also learn how to make positive, long term impacts which will support the health of the site.

Our Ecological Impact

Our Eco-logical Impact Report

This report is a formal system which identifies and creates an inventory of all the flora and fauna that exist in the area, the topography , substratum, site history/antiquity, site ownership, management and protection.

This process evaluates the factors which will support and enhance our interactions with this space.

Our Sustainability Woodland Action Plan

This plan outlines the proposed actions for looking after the woodland area that Canopy Forest School will occupy.

Our 3 Year Sustainable Woodland 

Management Plan

This three-year sustainable woodland management plan for the Forest School site  has been created from the ecological impact assessment and the  sustainable woodland management plan.
