As adults, we often forget that children listen to our conversations and form their own ideas, concerns, and worries about topics we don’t think they know anything about. In Forest School, we give children more credit than this, so our woodland classrooms could become the place to talk about issues or fears without being judged.
The World Health Authority has produced a handy pdf to help reduce children’s stress. The pdf is specifically geared to help adults reduce child stress around the infection and whilst it is geared towards parents the messages are still valid within the Forest School arena.
