This morning we started a 1-1 journey with a child who can’t access the curriculum at school due to trauma. We made journey sticks, learnt about different plants and trees and their defence systems, experimented with parachutes, zip wires and hammocks, cleaved wood to make spears, went spear fishing, pretended to be owls, wolves, dinosaurs and superhero’s. Accompanying school staff commented on increased attention span and focus during the session. Creating a yes space for young people, following their cues, play based learning and developing trust are some of the reasons Forest school works for children with demand avoidance, poor relationships with adults and peers, and school phobia. Seeing behaviour as an expression of need and meeting those needs by creating time and space for children and young people to lead their own discovery provides short term relief for those who find themselves in a constant struggle in formal education settings. Long term, access to forest school supports sensory integration, develops grounding strategies, boosts self esteem, promotes positive communication and relationships of trust, and builds new, happy memories. Here at Stomping Grounds we love our job. And this is the reason why. #forestschool #wellbeing #childled #playbasedlearning #makingadifference

When treasure hunt clues lead to tracking deer, camouflage in the hammock, exploring poo, comparing feathers and wondering who lives in which hole...that’s when you know your invitation worked! #forestschool #invitationtoplay#childledlearning #autism #hammocks #sensoryregulation @ Prudhoe
