YouTube channel launched to mark International Day of Forests




An outdoor learning class for children has been leaving a big impression through recent lockdowns - ensuring that children with learning, communication and interaction difficulties maintain their mental wellbeing.

Run by Asa Hardy-Brownlie and Ian Sippitt, who are teachers at specialist Aurora Eccles School in Quidenham, the forest school has just launched its own YouTube channel called Forest Folk to mark International Day of Forests on March 21.

Mr Hardy-Brownlie, 25, said: “Forest School is about an individualised learning experience. It’s not directed, but more about the young people having opportunities to develop interests and motivations through engaging with the natural world.

“The feedback for our channel has been really positive. We’ve had teachers and parents from as far away as Florida say that their children were accessing our videos.”
