Forest School

Incredible Autumn Experiences in the Dúbravka Forest

We started trips to the Dúbravka forest once all children, especially the new ones, felt comfortable in the classrooms. The weather is just beginning to get cooler, but I think forest looks best in this season. 

We discovered so many bright colours on the leaves, a warm- amber sun, sharper wind, thunderstorms, rotten barks, logs and sticks, berries, snail shells, mosses and ferns, different mushrooms, hazelnuts, chestnuts, acorns and other seeds which provide lots of natural materials for arts and crafts activities.

Let me introduce , what we did during our first session.

The students learnt about trees, flowers, plants, insects, edible and poisonous mushrooms, wood decay fungi, some basic bushcraft skills, such as a making oven from rocks and old bricks, lighting a fire, using ropes for learning how to climb on the trees and how to tie knots, roasting marshmallows, sausages, apples and bread, collecting natural materials into "mysterious bags", playing fairies and pixies, using a hammock to swing….

Our children had lots of space for curiosity, asking and answering questions, listening, collecting, acting, observing, and free playing , and chances for leading.

Last but not least we believe, that our children are happy in the Dúbravka forest and also have lots of fun!

“Forest School is an inspirational process that offers ALL learners regular opportunities to achieve, develop confidence and self-esteem, through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment with trees. Forest School is a specialized learning approach that sits within and compliments the wider context of outdoor and woodland education.”
