So, I'm due to start my first NQT post in a Y1 class in January. The school is very big on forest school - the kids do a half day every week. Now whilst I love the idea, I am not a forest school leader and have never even been to a forest school. The teacher I am taking over from, and the one in the other Y1 class, are both forest school leaders, and so do things like using tools, making fires etc with them. I'm really worried that my class are going to miss out, as I won't be able to do as many things. Worse still, they've had a whole term of doing those things and will now have to stop! Anyone know how difficult/expensive it is to get training in forest school leadership? Obviously I will ask this at school too but - what AM I allowed to do with them out there??
