We always try to find different ways to encourage and engage our children to learn.
Our school has a meadow and woodland area that we use during our Forest Schools sessions. Forest School is now embedded into our school curriculum. All pupils will take part in these sessions during the school year.
Forest School learning increases self-esteem, independence, risk taking, language development and much more! Children are able to explore their own preferred learning styles while developing a lifelong love and appreciation for the natural environment. Through carefully planned activities, pupils are able to develop and extend their personal, academic and spiritual development.
We are proud to have our own qualified Forest Schools Leader! If you have any questions about this part of our curriculum, please give Mrs Coleman a call at school.
We offer a wide range of learning activities as part of our Forest School:
- Learning about life cycles
- Mini-beasts and plants
- Mud kitchens!
- Looking after and exploring the natural world
- Camp fires
- Forest safety
A reminder letter is sent out to parents/carers at the beginning of each half term for the year groups that will be taking part in Forest School activities. This will inform you of the clothing that is needed.
We are always on the look-out for volunteers to help support our Forest School sessions, so if you are interested, please contact the school office.
