New Studio has permission from the Notting Hill Methodist Church to develop an existing piece of land at the back of the school into a Forest School, which is currently overgrown and unused. A Forest School is literally that – a school in the forest. It is a carefully structured, fun vehicle for outdoor learning, delivered through first-hand experience in a natural habitat. It uses the natural resources in the woodland and the children’s interests to stimulate imaginative, creative and investigative activities. Children can whittle sticks, hunt for mini beasts, help to light fires, make mud pies and build shelters. The aim of the programme is to develop the proposed area in order to introduce forest school sessions. Initially for the pre-school children and then extend it to other user groups including schools, community groups, children of Grenfell etc. during the term time and holidays. Our strategy is to improve the health and wellbeing of Kensington & Chelsea's future adults.
