We are pleased to be able to offer sessions for all pupils from YrR to Yr5.
All sessions are held in the afternoons between 1pm - 3.25pm, usually in the orchard down the road and sometimes at school. Forest school activities take place in all weathers and seasons.
We have water proof trousers and jackets to fit Yr 2 upwards. So all children will need old jogging bottoms and wellingtons when it is their turn. You will receive a letter before your child is due to take part in this exciting addition to our school curriculum.
What is Forest School?
Forest school is about discovering and experiencing the natural world through first hand practical activities. Every child is given the freedom to explore and experience the outdoors in all types of weather, in a safe and secure setting.
Each child is able to achieve and grow in confidence and self esteem and this has positive effects of all areas of their lives and learning.
What Happens At Forest School?
During the afternoon, the children can get involved in a variety of group activites if they wish or just enjoy exploring the orchard environment with the Forest School teamleaders. Following activities have proved to be very popular:
building shelters and dens
natural material collage
house for a mouse
Hide and Seek
Thank you to Mr Yates for kindly continuing to allow us to use the orchard for our activities and also to our PTA for purchasing new waterproofs for Forest School
