Gan Alon is very fortunate to have a Forest School within the grounds of The Sternberg Centre. Staff have undertaken training and Gan Alon children can make use of this extraordinary facility.
When do we go?
We do not have a specific day so that we can spread the opportunity to as many children as we can. We go to Forest School between 1.15 and 2.30pm every week.
What do the children wear?
• Gan Alon provide waterproof jackets and trousers that go over clothing.
These are kept and washed at Gan Alon.
• Children leave a pair of wellington boots at Gan Alon for the academic year.
What do we do there?
The children explore, dig, climb and forage. Nothing children do in the forest can be replicated within the confines of a building or classroom.
