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!

Our Forest School timetable has been adapted this term, because of Lockdown and Coronavirus restrictions, we have tried our best to make sure each class has been able to attend Forest School sessions at various stages throughout this school year, whilst adhering to Lockdown and Coronavirus restrictions as set out by the Government Guidance. Now that we are all fully back to school we will end the school year with a weekly Forest School timetable, starting with Year 4 in the first half of the Summer Term.
