Forest School Lead Teacher: Mrs Alder
What Are Forest Schools?
“A Forest School is an innovative educational approach to outdoor play and learning.”
Our school activities take place in and around the school grounds with the view to developing the school’s own woodland area in the future. Forest school embraces being outdoors whatever the weather enabling children to learn in a natural environment all year round. School provides full length waterproofs for each child.
We have recently acquired part of the woodland from the local council adjacent to our school. We have lots of plans to develop this lovely woodland space to enhance our pupil's learning whilst they are at our school.
Lots of exciting activities include:
- using tools
- making dens
- following and making trails
- environmental art
- mud sculptures
- cooking our own food over an open fire.
This half term Forest Friday will be for Owls and Butterflies Class
