Forest Schools

Forest School is an inspirational process, which offers ALL learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment with trees. We are really fortunate to be able to offer a Forest Schools experience to our children. Children from year 1-6  each have a half term of Forest Schools. This is an excellent initiative aimed at supporting children’s holistic development and well-being by providing opportunities to explore the outside in a woodland habitat. We are fortunate that our school grounds provide everything we need, although children in Neptune Class  also have the opportunity to work offsite. Activities are varied, and may include construction, campfires, learning new craft skills and  engaging with the natural world -  but definitely include getting muddy, grubby, solving problems and communicating!
