Let’s do this together



What we do

We invite you to join in the annual celebration of UK forest school. We aim to create joyful and playful celebrations on across the UK.

We encourage local forest school communities to connect together on a national scale.

We make it easy for you to share the forest school day idea and inspire others by sharing your own forest school stories, and celebration ideas.

We support you to craft your own forest school day celebration, LOCAL or COMMUNITY event ready for the week of October 11th.

Forest School Day is here!

Although Forest School Day is on Octobers 11th, 2019 this year, you can hold celebrations anytime this month. Last year one forest school shared images, videos and stories of celebrations they held for each of their groups throughout the whole week.

Register your celebration

We love  hearing about your wonderful celebrations! Here are a few that are happening today. 

On Friday 11th October our school Forest School Teacher will be holding a coffee and tea cake morning for busy parents after the school run. All cooked around the campfire in our lovely school forest school site, this is a great opportunity to celebrate the 4 years of forest school and share the great memories.

Be part of Forest School Day

Last year saw our first Forest School Day celebration of UK forest school. It was a great success with celebrations being held over the UK. In the first few days of launch, the website was viewed over 3,000 times, a facebook page post had a reach of 10,300 and we had over 200 individuals engage with the forest school day team. Not bad for a new idea!

So we are back again, and we have listened to your feedback and made it easier to join in. The main focus is to connect, share and celebrate all that is great and wonderful about forest school.
