The rise of the Forest School

More and more children across the country are being taken out of the classroom to be taught in the countryside. They're known as Forest Schools and they're becoming increasingly popular, with about 1,000 sessions taking place every month.

It's all part of a plan to make teaching more hands on and interesting. The idea started in Denmark and Sweden but Bridgwater College is the pioneer of the idea in the UK. Children are taught from the ages of 3 to 19.
