Forest School is a holistic approach to learning through hands-on experiences in a woodland or outdoor environment with trees. It is all about children building self-esteem, independence and skills through exploring the natural world. It also aims to foster concern for the environment and encourage children to look after the green spaces that they are in contact with.
Science is an important part of the curriculum as it helps children to understand the world around them. At Kingsmoor, we encourage children to investigate ideas for themselves through practical activities which encourage them to ask questions, make predictions and explain their findings.
At Kingsmoor, in order to enable all children to learn about and celebrate each other’s religions, we follow the exploRE document which is the agreed Essex syllabus for Religious education. We focus on the main religions such as Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam and Sikhism.
